Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying

The Board of Education believes that a safe and civil environment in school is necessary for students to learn and achieve high academic standards. Since students learn by example, school administrators, faculty, staff, and volunteers are required to demonstrate appropriate behavior, treating others with civility and respect, and refusing to tolerate harassment, intimidation, or bullying. Harassment, intimidation, or bullying, like other disruptive or violent behaviors, is conduct that disrupts both a student's ability to learn and a school's ability to educate its students in a safe environment. Therefore, the school district will not tolerate acts of harassment, intimidation, or bullying.

The Board expects all students to treat each other with civility and respect and not to engage in behavior that is disruptive or violent. The Board expects students to conduct themselves in keeping with their level of maturity, with a proper regard for the rights and welfare of other students, for school personnel, for the educational purpose underlying all school activities, and for the care of school facilities and equipment.

District and School Grade Report

The Official HIB Grade Report (listed below) provides information about the results of a district-based self-assessment that was conducted to determine fidelity to all of the requirements of the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights. There are eight core elements pertaining to staff training, development of programs that are designed to educate our students, effective investigation of complaints, and adherence to the process of reporting results. For each element, the district is able to assign the following values:

  • 0= Does Not Meet
  • 1= Partially Meets
  • 2= Meets Expectations
  • 3= Exceeds Expectations

The district is proud of its efforts to implement the Anti-Bullying Bill of Rights. The results of the self-assessment indicate that the district is clearly meeting or exceeding expectations with regards to educating our students, preventing acts of HIB and fostering a climate where all members of the school community feel safe, supported and welcomed.
