Safer Schools Reporting Tool
At NNDSB we believe that all students, staff, and community members are entitled to safe, welcoming environments. In order to ensure that our schools are as safe and accepting as possible, we have created an additional method for reporting incidents related to the infringement of human rights such as bullying and/or discrimination.
