Bullying reports drop by nearly half

Has bullying decreased within the Ripon Area School District?

According to the 2017-2018 Bullying Report, the answer is “yes.”

But one member of the Ripon Area School Board questioned the reported figure at the board’s meeting Monday.

Based on the completed incident reporting forms that were collected by the Student Services Office throughout the 2017-2018 school year, the total number of bullying incidents is 65.

This is a decrease from the 106 incidents previously reported from the 2016-2017 school year.

The report showed the number of bullying incidents across the schools and categorized them by the type of bullying or harassment.
