Bullying Policy

Definition

Bullying means repeated acts (verbal and non-verbal expressions and behaviors, including written statements and electronic transmissions and/or ‘cyber bullying’) that are coercive and intimidating and inhibit a positive and supportive learning environment.

Report Bullying

  • A. Any person who believes he or she has been the target or victim of bullying or any person with knowledge or belief of conduct that may constitute bullying or prohibited conduct under this policy shall report the alleged acts immediately to an appropriate school district official designated by this policy (see B in this section). A person may report bullying anonymously. All anonymous reports are investigated, however, the school may not rely solely on an anonymous report to determine discipline or other remedial responses.
  • B. The school district encourages the reporting party or complainant to use the report form available from the principal or supervisor of each building or available in the school district office. Oral and online reports shall be considered complaints as well.
