Anti-Bullying

Every student is entitled to a safe school environment free from discrimination, harassment, intimidation, and bullying.  The District’s policies on bullying can be accessed by clicking on the attached documents.  You may request hard copies in the school office.

As it relates to school activity, “bullying” means any severe or pervasive physical or verbal act or conduct, including communications made in writing or by means of an electronic act, and including one or more acts, committed by a pupil or group of pupils as defined in Education Code § 48900.2, 48900.3, or 48900.4, directed toward one or more pupils that has or can be reasonably predicted to have the effect of one or more of the following:

  • Placing a reasonable pupil or pupils in fear of harm to that pupil’s or those pupils’ person or property.

  • Causing a reasonable pupil to experience a substantially detrimental effect on his or her physical or mental health.

  • Causing a reasonable pupil to experience a substantial interference with his or her academic performance.

  • Causing a reasonable pupil to experience substantial interference with his or her ability to participate in or benefit from the services, activities, or privileges provided by a school.

 

What to do if you or someone you know is being bullied

  • Tell someone 

  • Talk to your teacher or parents

  • Please, speak up.  

Bullies do what they do because acts of bullying, intimidation, and harassment often go unreported.
