Bullying is any intentional negative actions on the part of one or more students, repeatedly and over time, that interfere with a student’s ability to participate in or benefit from the school’s educational programs. Cyberbullying is the use of electronic communication to harm or harass others in a deliberate, repeated, and hostile manner. Defamation, hazing, and stalking may also be considered bullying.
Harassment is intentional and inappropriate negative actions or conduct on the part of one or more students that cause discomfort with identity issues in regard to race, color, national origin, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion, or identifying characteristics, and that interfere with a student’s ability to participate in or benefit from the school’s educational programs.
Intimidation is subjecting an individual to intentional action that seriously threatens and induces a sense of fear and/or inferiority.
