Bullying Prevention Program
Uniontown Area High School is committed to providing a safe, positive learning environment for students. UAHS recognizes that bullying creates an atmosphere of fear and intimidation, detracts from the safe environment necessary for student learning, and may lead to more serious violence. Therefore, UAHS prohibits bullying of district students. Early intervention, reinforcement of a consistent message and follow through from students, parents/guardians, staff and administration can ensure that everyone's right to learn and work in a safe environment is respected.
