Anti-Harassment, Anti-Intimidation and Anti-Bullying Board Policy and Bullying Report

 

Anti-Harassment, Anti-Intimidation and Anti-Bullying Board Policy

Ohio requires all public school districts by Dec. 30, 2007, to adopt policies prohibiting harassment, intimidation and bullying. The Director of Pupil Services collects from each building the reports of instances of harassment, intimidation and bullying. This information is also reported annually to the Office of Civil Rights.

Harassment, intimidation or bullying means any:

  • Intentional written, verbal, graphic or physical act that a student or group of students exhibited toward another student more than once; and the behavior both:
    • Causes mental or physical harm to the other student; and
    • Is sufficiently severe, persistent or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, threatening or abusive educational environment for the other student.

In policy, the District must report to the Board of Education President and post any incidents of harassment, hazing, and bullying at the conclusion of each semester annually. The posting is made on the District’s website.
