Incident Reports

  • As BPS is working to increase the safety and well-being for staff and students in our district, we are looking to collect data that would indicate trends on incidents that are happening within our schools. This information would provide us with the ability to better understand issues and allow us to support schools with training resources and support personnel. The incident report form will collect information when incidents that occur and what they look like. This may include but are not limited to:

    • Times when an unregulated student poses a direct physical or verbal threat.
    • Physical altercations such as: hitting, kicking, biting, spitting, throwing objects, etc.
    • Destruction of classroom space and/or materials.
