Anonymous Reporting Tool
We believe all students have the right to attend school without fear of racism, discrimination or bullying.
A link to an Anonymous Reporting Tool has been placed on each school and the Centre for Employment and Learning website for anyone to advise staff of concerns about:
- Racism and hate
- Suspicion or signs of sex trafficking.
These incidents can occur on school or CEL property, cooperative education sites, during field trips or sporting events, or on remote learning platforms. List of school websites.
Why an electronic anonymous reporting tool?
Is it cyber secure?
How does the anonymous reporting tool work?
- A report is submitted using the form available on the school (or CEL) website.
- The school’s principal/vice-principal receives an email notification.
- The principal/vice-principal conducts an investigation based on information received. If the investigation confirms incidents of bullying, racism, hate, and/or sex trafficking, the school’s principal/vice-principal adheres to the process outlined in The Equity, Diversity and Inclusivity (EDI) Action Plan, AP 350: Bullying Prevention and Intervention, AP 360: Anti-Sex Trafficking, AP 378: Reporting and Responding to Racist and Hate-Based/Biased Incidents Impacting or Involving Students of the AMDSB.
Strengths and opportunities
- The tool provides students with a safe place to report incidents of racism and hate without making themselves potential victims of hate and/or isolation.
- This site-specific form is an additional tool for reporting incidents on the school (or CEL) website.
- This tool contributes to the efforts in identifying trends across the Board that can be systematically addressed through educational opportunities.
- Proactive intervention coupled with coaching and support can help all students develop the skills and understanding needed to build and maintain positive relationships and promote a positive school climate and inclusive culture.
