Harassment, Intimidation & Bullying (HIB)
The Board of Education prohibits acts of harassment, intimidation or bullying against any pupil. A safe and civil environment in school is necessary for pupils to learn and achieve high academic standards. Harassment, intimidation or bullying, like other disruptive or violent behaviors, is conduct that disrupts both a pupil's ability to learn and a school's ability to educate its pupils in a safe environment; and since pupils learn by example, school administrators, faculty, staff and volunteers should be commended for demonstrating appropriate behavior, treating others with civility and respect, and refusing to tolerate harassment, intimidation or bullying.
Please note that the Board of Education authorizes the use of electronic surveillance monitoring devices in school buildings, on school grounds and on school buses. Therefore, all school buildings, school grounds and school buses of this school district may be monitored using such devices in accordance with Board Policy.
