Bullying and Harassment
Bullying or harassment in any form will result in students being held accountable for their actions and words, and being subject to school discipline. These two terms are defined as:
Bullying: is any single act of intimidation, threatening, put downs, making fun of another person or persons. It is also defined as an individual imposing his/her will on another person through intimidation or violence. It consists of an individual or group acting or speaking aggressively or disrespectfully towards another individual or group due to a perceived imbalance of power.
Harassment: is repeated incidents of bullying. Reports on school-occurring bullying or harassment should IMMEDIATELY come to administrators from students, eye-witnesses, parents or staff members. School District Policy #7200 provides forms and a process for victims or witnesses to report on the harassment, and put this report into a documented official complaint for investigation.
