Our Commitment

Indian Springs School strives to create a community that values respect, inclusion, responsibility, and integrity. The Indian Springs School Employee Handbook governs conduct among adults on campus, including the general guidelines in our Code of Conduct, while the Read ‘N’ Heed guides student behavior.

Indian Springs is committed to an environment where all community members are encouraged to report any suspected violations of law or policy without fear of retaliation. Typically, the best place for a student to raise a concern or ask a question is with the school counselor, the school nurse, an administrator or advisor, or a trusted adult, in accordance with the Read ‘N’ Heed . Employees should feel comfortable reaching out to the Head of School or the Director of Finance and Operations, in accordance with the Employee Handbook.

The school recognizes that there are some situations where you prefer to remain anonymous. Therefore, Indian Springs has contracted with an independent third party (EthicsPoint) to serve as the point of intake for receiving complaints and concerns. This service supplements the direct reporting channels on campus that are available to students and employees to register such issues, and it provides an alternative channel for alumni to contact us.

Once we have received a confidential report from EthicsPoint, it will be investigated in accordance with the procedures outlined in the Employee Handbook and the Read ‘N’ Heed .

What is EthicsPoint?

EthicsPoint is a third-party service which provides confidential Internet and telephone-based reporting services to numerous academic institutions throughout the United States. By using EthicsPoint, the person who is raising the question or concern may choose to remain anonymous. However, please be aware that, in certain circumstances, it may not be feasible for the school to complete its investigation and follow up on certain types of reports if you choose to remain anonymous. Reports submitted to EthicsPoint will be handled as promptly and as confidentially as possible, consistent with School policies and applicable state, federal and local laws. You have our guarantee that your comments will be heard.

To Make a Report

You may use either of the following two methods to submit a report:

  • Select the "Make a Report" link at the top of this web page.
  • OR
  • Dial toll-free, within the United States, Guam, Puerto Rico and Canada:

After you complete your report you will be assigned a unique code called a "report key." Write down your report key and password and keep them in a safe place. After 1-2 business days, use your report key and password to check your report for feedback or questions.

Can anybody file a report?

Yes, but you are expected to act in "good faith" when making a report. This means that you are expected to provide information you know or suspect is true. Providing a report based on information you know is false can be hurtful to individuals who have not done anything wrong. Therefore, purposefully filing a false or malicious report can constitute grounds for disciplinary action. Also, Indian Springs prohibits retaliation against any individual who, in good faith, makes a complaint, voices a concern or cooperates in an investigation.
