Edison Peer Protection Program
The Perry Local school board defines bullying as an intentional, written, verbal or physical act that a student has exhibited toward another particular student more than once and the behavior both (1) causes mental or physical harm to the other student and (2) is sufficiently severe, persistent or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, threatening or abusive educational environment for the other student. To address the bullying issue at school, Edison/Pfeiffer have implemented the Edison/Pfeiffer Peer Protection Program. Each nine weeks all students will fill out an anonymous survey that asks specific questions about bullying incidents happening at school. Students can list themselves and/or others as either exhibiting bullying behaviors or being the victim. The counselors and/or administration will meet with students that have been listed numerous times on the survey, either as a bully or victim. Any questions or concerns about this program please feel free to call your child’s counselor.
