Definition of Bullying: 

Bullying occurs when a student or group of students engages in written or verbal expression, expression through electronic means, or physical conduct that occurs on school property, at a school-sponsored or school-related activity, or in a vehicle operated by the District and that:

  1. Has the effect or will have the effect of physically harming a student, damaging a student’s property, or placing a student in reasonable fear of harm to the student’s person or of damage to the student’s property; or
  2.  Is sufficiently severe, persistent, and pervasive enough that the action or threat creates an intimidating, threatening, or abusive educational environment for a student.

This conduct is considered bullying if it:

  1. Exploits an imbalance of power between the student perpetrator and the student victim through written or verbal expression or physical conduct; and
  2. Interferes with a student’s education or substantially disrupts the operation of a school.

Retaliation:  The District prohibits retaliation by a student or District employee against any person who in good faith makes a report of bullying, serves as a witness or participates in an investigation. 

False Claims:  A student who intentionally makes a false claim, offers false statements, or refuses to cooperate with a District investigation regarding bullying shall be subject to appropriate disciplinary action.
