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.
