REPORT A BULLY
Bullying, harassment, or intimidation are serious and will not be tolerated. Below is a form to report alleged bullying, harassment, or intimidation that occurred on school property, at a school-sponsored or school-related activity, or in a vehicle operated by the district. If you are a student victim, the parent/guardian of a student victim, a close adult relative of a student victim, or a school staff member, and wish to report an incident of alleged bullying, harassment, or intimidation, complete this form and return it to the principal at the student victim's school or to the central administration office.
Beginning in the 2012-13 school year, state law defined bullying as engaging 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.
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 contact; and (2) interferes with a student's education or substantially disrupts the operation of the school.
