Requested Information
Please provide a list of Bullying/Harassment/Intimidation incidents, Drug Use incidents, and Health Room visits with a brief description of each occurrence and the name of the school at which each occurred.

Please provide the information requested above for school years 2004-05 through 2018-19 in an XLS spreadsheet format, sorted by date chronologically, NOT sorted by category of incident (Bullying incident vs. Health Room visit.)

Date Received
Response Notes

Per discussions to clarify data sought, available reports under MPIA 2019-127 including health room visit information at the system-wide level, and state-wide annual reports by MSDE on bullying and harassment found most recently under 2018: http://marylandpublicschools.org/about/Documents/DSFSS/SSSP/Bullying/BullyingHarassmentReport2018.pdf were provided. Staff indicates health room visit data will not provide drug use counts as staff is unable to diagnosis, and thus may for instance fall under acute illness for physical symptoms expressed or under altered mental state. Additional clarification needed to continue response.
