Can I report an incident of discrimination or bias anonymously?

Posted by:

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.
