My 13 year old son was accused of bullying by a classmate 2 weeks ago. It started after an incident horsing around in the locker room after practice. The parents then said that my son has been harassing their son for 4 months. Never once did they mention it to me. I know the father and see him 3-4 times a week, never a mention. I see the mom 1-2 times a week, not a word. An investigation is opened by the school and his coaches, teachers and classmates are all interviewed and all say basically the same thing. "If there was bullying, we have not seen any indication of it." My son admitted to the incident in the locker room but says otherwise the 2 boys are friendly and he has no reason to believe that anything he's done could be interpreted as bullying. My question is, even if this is deemed to be a non-issue, it will go on his record as "unfounded bullying claim". Do I have any recourse? I am looking more at trying to keep his record clean, moreso than any retaliation against the parents that brought the claim (although my wife is thinking more along those lines). My son is a straight A honor student, very quiet and has never had any disciplinary actions against him in 10 years in school. I find it disturbing that anyone can yell "bully" and now my son gets labelled, as if the damage has already been done just by making the claim. Just for background, I am not a "not my son" type of dad. He admitted to the incident in the locker room and was punished appropriately.
