The Indian River County School District enforces a strict anti-bullying policy. Students are encouraged to follow the steps of “No. Go. Tell.” They’re instructed first to tell their aggressor to stop, next to walk away from the situation, and finally to tell a teacher. Students and parents can report bullying directly, or anonymously via reporting boxes strategically placed in multiple locations throughout each school.
To conserve resources, the Indian River County School District provides a virtual school backpack. Documents such as flyers, announcements, and forms are digitally accessible to students, parents, and faculty.
