Bullying is a form of harassment which
is unacceptable behavior. Bullying is
defined as harassment verbally,
physically, and/or emotionally which is
repetitive in nature (similar behavior
which occurs more than once), creates
a power imbalance (by size, age, or
numbers), and is intended to hurt the
victim socially, emotionally, or physically.
Students and parents can report
incidences of bullying by completing the
Bullying/Harassment Report Form on
the District website. You can also get to
a report tool by going to "my school
sites" on your tablet or your teacher's
Haiku page. (See the Prezi presentation)
