At IDEA Public Schools, we know that a safe and respectful environment is key to achieving academic excellence. 🚫Bullying and harassment is conduct that disrupts both a student’s ability to learn and a school’s ability to educate students in a safe environment. It’s our goal to produce an environment where all students feel safe and are confident in achieving success in school.
