Columbus Children’s Theatre presents Jack and the Beanstalk

Columbus Performance Academy and Eastland Performance Academy enjoyed “Jack and the Beanstalk” performed by the Columbus Children’s Theatre (CCT) traveling troupe. Teachers worked with students using grade level guides provided by CCT prior to the performance to link state standards in math, reading, character education, and writing to key elements of the story and performance. Proper theatre audience etiquette was also discussed with students ahead of the show. Students were excited they got to participate in different parts of the play, and a great time was had by all! What fun!

Bullying Incident Reporting

Student safety is always our primary concern. Our school is committed to ensuring all students are safe and well cared for. We take any report of bullying or harassment seriously, and we stand ready to speak with anyone who has a bullying complaint or concerns about bullying behavior. Bullying/harassment/intimidation is defined as:

“Any intentional, persistent, and repetitive written, verbal, graphic, electronically transmitted, or physical act that a student, or group of students, exhibits toward another student and the behavior both: a) causes mental or physical harm to the other student; AND b) is sufficiently severe that it creates an intimidating, threatening, or abusive educational environment for the victim. The definition of “harassment, intimidation or bullying” also includes the above described acts which are electronically generated, stored, or transmitted.

Traditional public schools and public charter schools in Ohio are required to report verified incidents of bullying two times per year. For the first half of the 2016-17 school year, the Eastland Performance Academy has had 1 verified incidents of bullying/harassment reports in which disciplinary action was taken. Such disciplinary procedures may range from conferencing with students and families to out-of-school suspensions.

The school also takes false accusations of bullying seriously. The school has a policy against false accusations of bullying to protect persons against unjust accusations, particularly when such false accusations are intended to cause harm to another individual. Those who make reports in good faith, believing information to be truthful, do not have adverse consequences for reporting bullying behavior.
