Stop Bullying Campaign

 

What is Bullying?

  • Bullying is exposing a person to abusive actions repeatedly over time. Bullying becomes a concern when hurtful or aggressive behavior toward an individual or group appears to be unprovoked, intentional, and(usually) repeated 
  • Cyberbullying is an "electronic act" and is defined as transmission of a communication, including, but not limited to, a message, text, or image by means of an electronic device, including but not limited to, a telephone, wireless telephone or other wireless communication device and/or computer

 

Effects of Bullying

  • Victims of bullying may experience negative emotions like fear, anger, frustration, and anxiety.

 

  • Repeated bullying may lead to ongoing illness, mood swings, withdrawal from friends and family, an inability to concentrate, and loss of interest in school.

 

  • If left unattended, a student who is bullied may develop attendance and/or discipline problems, which may lead to failure in school.  In extreme cases, they may become suicidal or retaliatory and violent. 

 

How to Prevent Bullying

  • All adults should teach and model tolerance and acceptance; consistently, monitoring campus and classroom dynamics may prevent incidents of bullying.

 

  • Victims and witnesses must report any incidents of bullying to an adult authority (teacher, coach, parents, counselor, or administrator); adults must respond immediately and appropriately.

 

  • Students must respect one another’s boundaries and demonstrate acceptable behavior at all times.

 

  • School staff must communicate both the school discipline policy and possible legal implications of repetitive acts of bullying.

 

Possible Disciplinary Consequences: 

  • First Occurrence (Warning): Student will meet with an administrator and/or school counselor. Parent(s) will be contacted. Infraction will be documented in IC. Student will be monitored by administration.

 

  • Second Occurrence (In-House Suspension or Out of School Suspension 1-3 days): Student/parent(s) will meet with an administrator. The school counselor will be notified. Infraction will be documented in IC, which may affect college admissions. Student will continue to be monitored by administration.

 

  • Third Occurrence (Out of School Suspension 3-5 days): Student/parent(s) will meet with an administrator. The school counselor will be notified. Infraction will be documented in IC, which may affect college admissions. Student will continue to be monitored by administration.
