Asheboro City Schools is committed to providing an inclusive environment for each student across the district. We all come from different backgrounds, which we view as a strength of our school family. In our classrooms, our educators work with students to instill our district’s core values including respect, honesty, kindness, integrity, and compassion. These values are expected in the classroom, on the playground, and beyond the school day. We encourage our families to review the following tools and work with us to continue promoting a positive school climate.
What is bullying?
Bullying is deliberate conduct intended to harm another person or group of persons. It is characterized by repeated unwanted aggressive behavior that typically involves a real or perceived imbalance of power, such as a difference in physical size, strength, social standing, intellectual ability, or authority. It may consist of either physical, verbal, or nonverbal behavior. Cyberbullying is a form of bullying that is carried out using electronic communication media, such as words, action, or conduct conveyed through email, instant messages, text messages, tweets, blogs, photo or video sharing, chat rooms, or websites, and may exist in the absence of a power imbalance typical of other forms of bullying.

What to do if you suspect your or another child is being bullied?
Talk to your child and determine if you think their situation meets the criteria for being bullied.
If you have not already done so talk with your child's teacher.
If the situation doesn’t improve speak to your child's principal or assistant principal.
If the situation remains ongoing, please contact Asheboro City Schools Central Office (336-625-5104) and ask to speak with Support Services.
