The Board of Trustees encourages early and informal resolution of complaints. The first step is to communicate directly at the site level whenever possible. The majority of complaints can be resolved through communicating directly with the individual. Recognizing that is not always possible or practical, the policies below outline the steps to be taken.

Bullying is not tolerated in Templeton schools. Students are encouraged to report incidents of bullying so that they may be addressed and resolved appropriately. Any complaint of bullying shall be investigated and, if determined to be discriminatory, resolved in accordance with law and the district's uniform complaint procedures as outlined in AR 1312.3.
The Role of the School in Suicide Prevention
Children and adolescents spend a substantial part of their day in school under the supervision of school personnel. Effective suicide and violence prevention is integrated with supportive mental health services, engages the entire school community, and is imbedded in a positive school climate through student behavioral expectations and a caring and trusting student/adult relationship.
School psychologists and other crisis response team personnel, including the school counselor and school administrator, are trained to intervene when a student is identified at risk for suicide. These individuals conduct suicide risk assessments, warn/inform parents, and provide recommendations and referrals to support services.
If you or someone you know is suicidal, get help immediately via 911, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK or the Crisis Text Line (text "HOME" to 741741). Suicide is the leading cause of death among school age youth. However, suicide is preventable. Youth who are contemplating suicide frequently give warning signs of their distress. Parents, teachers, and friends are in a key position to pick up on these signs and get help. Most important is to never take these warning signs lightly or promise to keep them secret. When all adults and students in the school community are committed to making suicide prevention a priority - and are empowered to take the correct actions - we can help youth before they engage in behavior with irreversible consequences.
There is no place in TUSD schools for hate-motivated behavior. We are committed to providing a safe learning environment.
