  • Bullying
  • Decision-Making/Personal Responsibility
  • Grief and Trauma
  • Peer Pressure
  • Social skills
  • Anger Management 

or other issues that may be affecting the students in their schools.

If you are interested in referring a student for behavior intervention services, please contact the school administrator or school counselor for additional information.

  • BULLYING PREVENTION

    MPS defines bullying as, "any repeated and pervasive verbal, written, or electronic expression, physical act or gesture, or pattern thereof, that is intended to cause distress upon one or more student in the school, on school grounds, in school vehicles, at designated school bus stops, or at school activities or sanctioned events, whether on or off school property.  Bullying includes, but is not limited to, hazing, harassment, intimidation or menacing acts directed a student, which may, but need not be, based on the student's race, color sex, ethnicity, national origin, religion, mental, physical or sensory disability, socioeconomic background, age or sexual orientation. "

    If it is suspected that a student is a victim of bullying, the school Principal, or Principal's designee, should be notified of the allegation.  The MPS Bullying/Harassment Complaint Form can be found in the MPS Code of Student Behavior Handbook.
