Bullies Beware -- Board Passes New Policy to Eliminate Bullying, Harassment and Intimidation

In its commitment to providing all students and staff with a safe learning environment where everyone is treated with respect and no one is physically or emotionally harmed, the Board of Education has approved a policy saying the district will not tolerate any student or staff member being bullied (including cyber-bullying), harassed, or intimidated in any form at school or school-related events (including off-campus events, school-sponsored activities, school buses, and any event related to school business), or outside of school hours with the intention to be carried out during any of the above.
