Bullying and Harassment Prevention
 
Winston-Salem/Forsyth County Schools takes a stand against bullying in all its forms. This website is designed to support the goals of the school system’s anti-bullying and harassment policy. Through the combined efforts of school staff, students, parents and the community, WS/FCS hopes to eliminate bullying and harassment from the lives of students and adults.

What is bullying?
Bullying is any pattern of gestures or written, electronic, or verbal communications, or any physical act or any threatening communication, that places a student or school employee in actual and reasonable fear of harm to his or her person or damage to his or her property; or creates or is certain to create a hostile environment by substantially interfering with or impairing a student's educational performance, opportunities, or benefits.
