Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying (HIB) Resources and Reporting

Olympic Academy is committed to a safe and civil educational environment for all students that is free from harassment, intimidation, or bullying. In order to ensure respect and prevent harm, it is a violation of Capital Region ESD113 Policy 3005 for a student to be harassed, intimidated, or bullied by others in the school community, at school-sponsored events, or when such actions create a substantial disruption to the educational process. 

If your child feels he/she has been harassed or bullied, the incident(s) should be reported immediately to a teacher, program coordinator, assistant director, or the director. 

For appeals or procedure questions, contact HIB compliance officer Amy Dunnagan. She can be contacted at 360-262-1990 or adunnagan@esd113.org.
