​​​Chinook School Division Anti-Bullying Resources & Initiatives

The definition of Bullying from “Saskatchewan Action Plan to Address Bullying & Cyberbullying”, 2013: Bullying is a relationship issue where one person or group repeatedly uses power and aggression to control or intentionally hurt, harm or intimidate another person or group. It is often based on another person’s appearance, abilities, culture, race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation or gender identity. Bullying can take many forms; physical, emotional, verbal, psychological or social. It can occur in person or though electronic communication.  

• Chinook School Division is committed to providing safe and respectful school environments.
• Each school has developed guidelines and rules necessary for the establishment and maintenance of safe, positive environments; and various tools and programs are utilized to support students in this area.
• Students and families are encouraged to communicate concerns to teachers and administrators and work directly with the school to resolve challenges that they may experience.  
• Division and school personnel understand the importance of engaging students, parents, school community councils and community agencies in the prevention of bullying. 
• We recognize that bullying behaviour is a complex issue, and welcome the involvement of families in working toward solutions.
• Students and families have access to the Government of Saskatchewan’s anonymous online reporting tool, a key component in “Saskatchewan’s Action Plan to Address Bullying and Cyberbullying”. A link to this tool and resources is provided on the home pages of the Chinook websites (and below).
