In addition, every student is responsible to respect the rights of others to ensure an atmosphere free from bullying. There is no justification for any student to act in a manner that creates fear or an atmosphere of intimidation. Students who do are risking their enrollment at the Mercer County Career Center.Students who have been bullied or have witnessed such actions should report the incident to a Mercer County Career Center staff member who will inform the principal
A student who has a complaint of harassment, abuse, or misconduct by anyone may complain directly to the principal, guidance counselor, or instructor. An investigation will be conducted and a resolution will be sought that is satisfactory to the complainant. Students who harass other students in any way or make reckless statements that could be construed as intimidating or threatening are risking serious disciplinary action as well as possible legal charges. These types of problems can be prevented if you use our student referral system to head off problems before they are out of hand. Each student shall be responsible to respect the rights of their fellow students and Mercer County Career Center employees and to ensure an atmosphere free from all forms of unlawful harassment.
Any activity that recklessly or intentionally endangers the mental health, physical health or safety of a student for the purpose of initiation or membership in or affiliation with any class or organization will be viewedas hazing.
