What is the Bullying Prevention Policy for Archdiocese of Boston Catholic Schools?
The Archdiocese of Boston believes that each Catholic school, in fulfilling its role within the educational mission of the Church, must share and live out, through Catholic Christian tradition, the message of Jesus Christ and be committed to providing an integrated Catholic educational environment that permeates all aspects of its daily life and operations.
It is essential that a safe, positive and productive educational environment be established where students can achieve the highest academic standards and where no student shall be subjected to Bullying, Cyber-Bullying or Retaliation. Pastors, principals, faculty, Staff and volunteers are expected to demand that all students behave appropriately and treat others with civility and respect.
Seán Cardinal O’Malley has established a Bullying Prevention Policy that is applicable to all Catholic Parish Schools and all other Catholic schools over which the Archbishop has authority to appoint trustees, directors, governors or officers. The full policy is available at the following link to the Boston Catholic Schools Bullying Prevention Policy.

I need the “Non-Public School Service Form” completed for my retirement.
If you worked in a Catholic school prior to 1980, please send the form to the Catholic Schools Office. We will verify the information and return the form to you. We have information on the location of school records and can do this even if the school is closed. The superintendent must sign the form.
If you worked in a Catholic school after 1980, there are no teacher records at the Catholic Schools Office. Most teachers since 1980 did pay into retirement programs besides social security and this information should be available at the school or rectory.
