Can I report an incident of discrimination or bias anonymously?
Reports of any concerning behavior may be made anonymously. Anonymous reports of bullying can also made on our online district bullying report, available at: https://respect.newton.k12.ma.us/. We are in the process of developing a similar online report form for incidents of discrimination or bias. To the extent possible, NPS strives to honor requests for anonymity; however, this is not always possible. Anonymous reports are more difficult to investigate and respond to, so whenever possible, we encourage concerned community members to speak directly to a staff member with their concerns, knowing that we are always sensitive to the need for confidentiality of victims and reporters in any investigation. Retaliation by any community member for a report of discrimination or bullying is clearly prohibited by our policy.
