Bullying Prevention

Bullying Prevention

Bullying is unfair and one-sided behavior. It happens when someone keeps hurting, frightening, threatening, or leaving someone out on purpose, in person or via multi-media.

To qualify as bullying, the incident must involve an imbalance of power between the target and the student who acts aggressively. Bullying usually involves multiple incidences, aggressor & the target have drastically different reactions to the incident, and target feels powerless to self-advocate.

PROCEDURE FOR REPORTING AN INCIDENT OF BULLYING BEHAVIOR

  • Referral form is given to the counselors, principal, or assistant principal.
  • Students may bring the incident to the attention of a teacher, counselor, principal, or any school personnel.
  • Students will be able to fill out a Student Harassment/Bully Report Form and turn it into the box in the counseling office or library. This box will be checked daily.

  • If it is an immediate safety concern, the staff member will contact the office to escort the student who is acting aggressively to the front office to ensure student safety.

SCHOOL POLICY ON RESPONDING TO INCIDENTS OF BULLYING

  • An investigation will take place where all parties involved are interviewed. Findings of the investigation will be documented.
  • Teachers and other staff who are involved with the students will be notified to help monitor and prevent further bullying situations.
