Student Leadership: Bullying Prevention

What is Bullying?

         In Northside, student conduct is considered“bullying"  if it:

1.  exploits an imbalance of power between the student perpetrator and the student victim through:

●      written expression

●      verbal expression

●      expression through electronic means (cyberbullying)

●      physical contact;

2.  interferes with a student’s education or substantially disrupts the operation of a school.

3.  occurs on school property, at a school-sponsored or school related activity or in a vehicle operated by the district.

 

Bullying is continued abuse of power that is intentionally hurtful. 

Bullying is NOT part of normal conflict.

Bullying is typically NOT a one-time occurrence

Bullying, in its most basic form, is abuse, harassment, and/or violence.

 

Northside School District takes all instances of bullying and harassment seriously.  All campus personnel are prepared to respond and resolve these situations in a fair and timely manner.
