Non-Discrimination Policy

CALLED Christian School does not engage in unlawful discrimination or harassment because of race, color, ancestry, religion, age, sex, national origin, pregnancy or childbirth, disability, or military/veteran status in its educational programs and activities. CALLED Christian School maintains its Christian mission and reserves its right to discriminate on the basis of religion to the extent that applicable law respects its right to act in furtherance of its religious objectives.

 

Cyber-Bullying Policy

Cyber-bullying is defined as defamatory behavior through the use of electronic technologies such as school discussion forums, email communications, social media, personal websites, or cell phone communications with the intention of causing harm to others to the extent that the educational atmosphere has become one of abuse.

 

Cyber-bullying consists of dangerous or abusive behavior that directly alters the condition of a student’s education, thus requiring administrative action in order to ensure the safety of students, staff, faculty & administration.

 

Upon Receiving a Report of Cyberbullying, CALLED Christian School Will Take the Following Measures:

  1. Report – Any student who believes he/she has been the victim of bullying has a responsibility to report the alleged bullying to his/her teacher or academic advisor as soon as possible. Furthermore, any student, parent, guardian, or teacher who has knowledge of conduct which may constitute cyberbullying has a responsibility to report such conduct to a teacher, an academic advisor, or an administrator.
  2. Investigate – In response to receiving notification of alleged cyberbullying, CALLED Christian School's administration will conduct an investigation in order to determine if a violation of the Cyberbullying Policy occurred. The investigation may involve reviewing documentation of the alleged bullying and interviewing the parties involved in the alleged cyberbullying.
  3. Notify – If CALLED Christian School determines that a violation of the Cyberbullying Policy did occur, the parents/guardians of all students involved will be notified of the occurrence(s) and the resulting disciplinary action(s). School administration will notify local law enforcement if it believes that criminal charges are warranted.
  4. Disciplinary Action – CALLED Christian School's administration will take appropriate action in addressing the misconduct and doing its best to prevent it from occurring again. Disciplinary action may include the following measures:
  • Verbal warning to the student,
  • Requiring a written apology sent to any student who was harassed, the administration, and any other parties involved, and Permanent expulsion from the academy.

 

Parental Rights Policy

Parents typically have undivided rights to make joint educational choices for their children. The only means of nullifying this is by court order. CALLED Christian School will not terminate or deny the rights of any parent until it has proof of legal obligation not to provide student information to one or both parents. In such cases, a court order must state that one or both parents may not have access to information pertaining to a child who attends CALLED Christian School. Additional identifying information such as a birth certificate may be required in order to verify parental status.

 

Suicide and Self-Harm Policy

When a student is identified by a CALLED Christian School employee as potentially suicidal or self-harming, CALLED Christian School's administration or another CALLED Christian School employee will contact the student, parents, or guardians to check on safety concerns. The purpose of this policy is to protect the health, safety, and wellbeing of CALLED Christian School students by having procedures in place to prevent suicide and other selfharming behaviors. This policy complements other CALLED Christian School policies in supporting the emotional and behavioral health of the students.

 

Child Abuse or Neglect Policy

In recognition of the unreported criminal activities that surrounded the Penn State child abuse scandal, many states have enacted laws and/or reinforced current laws defining mandated child abuse or neglect reporting requirements.

 

The Virginia Legislature has extended reporting requirements, effective July 1, 2012, mandating that every employee of a public or private institution of higher education who, in his or her employment capacity, has reason to suspect that a child (under the age of eighteen) is an abused or neglected child, has a responsibility under law to report the suspected child abuse or neglect within twenty-four hours of concern. This report must be made to the local city or county Social Services office where the child resides, where the abuse or neglect is believed to have occurred.
