bullying verbal assalt verbal and or physical harassment of students or staff members school rule
  • Every student and staff member has the right to feel secure from any form of physical or verbal harassment, including bullying and/or hazing, during the school day from the time the student leaves home to go to school, until he/she returns home, and also at school-sponsored events. Staff members are required to report cases of verbal and/or physical harassment or hazing. Any form of abuse to a student or staff member, verbal or physical should be reported immediately to the principal or assistant principal. In the case of a physical assault, local police may be notified. Verbal assault is defined as verbally attacking or threatening another individual. Students found violating the above policy will be required to serve an out-of-school suspension.

Criminal Harassment: G.L. Chapter 265, Sec. 43(A)Harassment is considered a crime if:
  • Over a period of time the defendant knowingly engaged in a pattern of conduct or series of acts involving at least three incidents directed at the alleged victim.
  • Those acts were a kind that would cause a reasonable person to suffer substantial emotional distress.
  • Those acts did cause the alleged victim to become seriously alarmed (not just annoyed).
  • The defendant did the harassing actions in a willful and malicious manner (an act is willful if it is done intentionally, not by mistake. An act is done maliciously if it is done out of cruelty, hostility, revenge, or other wrongful motive.)

How Do You Know It’s Bullying?

  • Creation of an atmosphere of terror.
the effect on bystanders
The Effect on Bystanders
  • 75% of students report feeling ashamed when they witness bullying.
  • 48% of students agreed that coming to the aid of a victim reduces their social standing
  • Being exposed to violence and maltreatment is associated with “increased depression, anxiety, anger, post-traumatic stress, alcohol use, and low grades.”
the effect on bullies
The Effect on Bullies
  • Adults who bullied as children have higher rates of substance abuse (including alcohol, drugs, and cigarettes), domestic violence, and other violent crime.
  • Bullies identified by age 8 are six times more likely to be convicted of a crime by the time they reach age 24 and five times more likely to end up with a serious criminal record by age 30.
  • Bullies achieve less academically, occupationally, and personally.
  • Bullies can be quite popular in middle school, but by the time they get to high school bullies are less popular. In adulthood, they tend to have few friends and appear to perpetuate the cycle of violence in their children by rewarding aggression.
  • Bullies have more negative attitudes about school and tend to pass those attitudes on to their children.
  • One study showed bullies have higher rates of suicide than their targets.
the effect on targets
The Effect on Targets
  • Approximately 160,000 school children stay home each day out of fear, often without telling their parents why.
  • Targets of bullying experience higher than normal levels of insecurity, anxiety, depression, low self-esteem, and other physical and mental symptoms.
  • The stress brought on by chronic bullying leads to a diminished ability to learn.
  • In extreme cases, targets can resort to violence and suicide.
