Frequently Asked Questions

Solutions

  • 1. What if the person involved does not attend my school?

    Your right to be free from bullying or harassment is a matter of state law and doesn’t depend on where people go to school. Your school’s Bridgit officer is responsible for helping to resolve the problem regardless of where the bully or harasser lives.

  • 2. Once a school receives my report, what happens next?

    Under state law, the school is required to investigate any complaint about harassment or bullying.

  • 3. What if the school does not take action in response to my report?

    You may contact the school’s Bridgit officer to find out whether the complaint was investigated and what the result was, or you can ask your parents to contact the school. Bridgit is a reporting and communication system, not an investigative system, and Bridgit does not make any finding of fact about reports.

  • 4. Can students report on teachers?

    Yes, if the school chooses to allow it.

  • 5. What happens to reports that are filed outside of school hours, such as at night or on weekends?

    The school’s Bridgit officer can get an email about a filed report anytime, 24 hours a day. If you believe that you or another student are in immediate physical danger, you can always speak with your parents, a teacher, 911, or law enforcement.
