What is Bullying?

Bullying is defined as a situation in which a student is exposed repeatedly and over time to negative actions on the part of one or more students.

Negative actions can include inappropriate gestures, written statement, verbal remarks, or physical acts of aggression that place a student in reasonable fear of harm to his person or property, or that has the effect of insulting or demeaning any student in such a way to interfere with their education.

Bullying most often will occur when a student asserts physical or psychological power over, or is cruel to, another student perceived to be weaker than they are for an ongoing period of time.
