Anonymously Report Bullying and Harassment
As a school, we would like to address all concerns related to bullying and harassment. To do so requires that we have knowledge of the incident. The form below has been created so that people have a safe way to report bullying and safety concerns. When a person really needs help we hope you will step up and send in a report. Sending in a false report makes it harder for your school to help the people who really need it. You have the option to send in a report anonymously. If you don't want your report to be anonymous then include your name as the reporter in the area that says, What is your name? Including your name means that it will be sent along with the other details of the report.
School Report Card Entire Article
This October, the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction (DPI) will issue a School Report Card for each of our Baraboo schools and for every public school in Wisconsin. The School Report Card, using multiple measures of student learning, will provide valuable guidance on how our schools are doing and where they can improve. The new report cards will help all Wisconsin public schools get a better picture of how well they help children learn, advance to the next grade, and graduate ready for college and career.
