Policy

Harassment, hazing, bullying and cyberbullying is strictly prohibited. Discrimination and harassment means an intentional act against any student by employees or students, on school property or at a school function, that creates a hostile environment by conduct, with or without physical contact by verbal or written threats, intimidation or abuse including cyberbullying, of such a severe nature that it:


(a) has or would have the effect of unreasonably and substantially interfering with a student's educational performance, opportunities or benefits, or mental, emotional physical well-being; or


(b) reasonably causes or would reasonably be expected to cause a student to fear for his or her physical safety. Such conduct shall include, but is not limited to, threats, intimidation, or abuse based on a person's actual or perceived race, color, weight, national origin, ethnic group, religion, religious practice, disability, sexual orientation, gender or sex.


Reports of harassment, bullying, and discrimination shall be made to the Building Principal or the Building Principal's designee. Students and parents/guardians may make an oral or written report of harassment, bullying or discrimination to District teachers or Administration.


Retaliation against any individual who, in good faith, reports or assists in the investigation of harassment, bullying and/or discrimination is strictly prohibited. Harassment, bullying and/or discrimination may constitute a crime and could be reportable to law enforcement.
