Bully Law

IEP TEAMS at Georgetown Public Schools address bullying in every IEP

The following statement is included in all IEPs

In accordance with M.G.L. c. 71 B 3, as amended by Chapter 92 of the Acts of 2010, (Bullying Law) the team has taken under consideration whether or not the student has a disability that affects social skills development or that the student may participate in or is vulnerable to bullying, harassment, or teasing because of a disability.

This clause is discussed at every IEP meeting, and individual student information is documented in the meeting minutes for every student.

If the student is considered to have a propensity to either be a bully or to be bullied, this is addressed in the IEP according to individual student needs.
