Stafford County recognizes bullying as a serious offense. It is discussed and outlined in the Students Code of Conduct. If a student is found guilty of bullying behavior, corrective action must be taken. This includes a range of actions such as warning, suspension or expulsion depending on the seriousness of the incident, prior incidents, and the need to protect the victim and others from future bullying.
“Stafford County Public Schools is committed to creating a safe, caring, respectful learning environment for all students. Bullying of students occurring in the schools is strictly prohibited and will not be tolerated. For the purpose of the policy, “school” includes school buildings, school grounds, school-sponsored social events, trips, sporting events, buses, and bus stops. Reported incidents of bullying will be investigated promptly and thoroughly by school administration.

Our principals and teachers talk to students about the harm bullying can cause and how they can help. Each class participates in guidance classes about bullying and what to do whether they are the victim or the bystanders Each student receives the Conway Bully Free Pledge and every member of our student body signs their class pledge to be bully free. Students can refer themselves to the counselor if they see or are having a problem with bullying.
