WHAT ABOUT PEOPLE WHO MAKE FALSE REPORTS?

In the event that an untrue or malicious statement about someone or something is reported, please know that it will be subject to possible discipline according to the Catholic Code of Conduct.
WILL PRINCIPALS KEEP THESE FORMS?
Yes. All reports filed will be securely stored by the school Principal and will be kept on file for one year.
I understand that any untrue or malicious claims are subject to discipline and will be dealt with accordingly and to the best of my knowledge, all of the information that I am providing in this report is true and accurate.
