From Principal Krieg...
Harassment, intimidation or bullying means any intentionally written message or image (including those that are electronically transmitted) verbal, or physical act, including but not limited to one shown to be motivated by race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation including gender expression or identity, mental or physical disability or other distinguishing characteristics, when an act: Physically harms a person or damages the person's property. Has the effect of substantially interfering with a student’s education or a person's job. Is so severe, persistent or pervasive that it creates an intimidating or threatening educational environment. Has the effect of substantially disrupting the orderly operation of the school.
Often times some behaviors we are dealing with at the middle school can be better described as mean, rude, or disrespectful behavior, and does not meet the criteria for bullying. Again, I want to reiterate that all of these behaviors are discouraged and address when reported, however the consequences or follow up will be dependent on the level of offense as well as other factors.
The counselor and I will be having conversations with students to help them identify bullying, as well as, different avenues for reporting. One option for reporting if a student isn't comfortable reporting in person is to utilize the SafeSchools website or application, this is a completely anonymous reporting system. The link to the SafeSchools website and mobile App is below.
