Respect for All is our system-wide response to bullying and harassment. We are committed to keeping our schools safe, supportive, and free from discrimination.
What You Can Do About Bullying…
Report the incident to your school's Respect for All (RFA) liaison(s) and/or school administration. Principal Daisy Fontanez, AP Joel Lowy, AP Laura Hindelong, Dean Angela Skirianos, Guidance Counselor for Grades 9-11 Maiya Williams or Senior Counselor, Denise Ortiz.
Ask for the incident number from school administration for follow up. This is also known as Online Occurrence Reporting System (OORS) number.
The school will investigate and must tell the parent or guardian of the target what they find. If needed, the child may be referred for support services.
If the investigation finds that a student—or students—have been bullying or harassing your child, the school will follow the process described in the Discipline Code.
You can also report bullying concerns by:
Emailing the Office of Safety and Youth Development (OSYD) at RespectforAll@schools.nyc.gov
Contacting the United Federation of Teachers Hotline at 212-709-3222, Monday through Friday, from 2:30-9:30PM
