Stand Up, Speak Out. Stop Bullying Now

Hanover County Public Schools is pleased to announce the launch of the “Stand Up, Speak Out - Stop Bullying Now” anonymous digital reporting tool on all school websites. This new, easy-to-find, and easy-to-use solution will allow students and parents to report bullying from anywhere, on any device, at any time to help further support the safety and mental health needs of students. 

“The well being of our students is our highest priority. We are committed to meeting their ever-increasing, evolving, and complex needs, and this new tool is an important addition to advancing our efforts,” said Superintendent Dr. Michael Gill.

Students and parents can access the link by visiting the Home page of their school’s website and clicking on the “Stand Up, Speak Out - Stop Bullying Now” button near the bottom of the page or by using the “Students” and “Parents” tabs on the main menu. School administrators and counselors will directly receive the information and will work to resolve the concern as quickly as possible during normal business hours. 

As defined in § 22.1-276.01 of the Code of Virginia, bullying is “any aggressive and unwanted behavior that is intended to harm, intimidate, or humiliate the victim; involves a real or perceived power imbalance between the aggressor or aggressors and victim; and is repeated over time or causes severe emotional trauma. 'Bullying' includes cyberbullying. 'Bullying' does not include ordinary teasing, horseplay, argument, or peer conflict.”
