American School recently updated its anti-bullying policy in accordance with Illinois State Board of Education policies. A copy of the policy is available in this blog and on the FAQ page of our web site, and you should refer to it as needed. You may think that students in a distance education middle school or distance education high school might not need an anti-bullying policy, but bullying goes beyond in-person activities, so that is why it is important for us to have an anti-bullying policy. Please read the policy carefully and follow the procedures in it at all times. We appreciate your cooperation and are happy to have you in our accredited middle school program, accredited high school program or independent study program.
