The development and maintenance of self-discipline is an integral aspect of learning. Efforts at such development are not only critical to a student’s growth as a learner, but are essential to maintain a school climate that encourages learning for all students. As such, the bullying of a student by other students will not be tolerated within the School District.
Board Policy and Regulation 249, Bullying, provides information on the subject of bullying within the District. This policy is extended to the transportation of students to and from school. No student should be in an environment that makes him/her feel unsafe, intimidated, or abused. It is the practice of the School District to maintain an environment in which bullying in any form is not tolerated. Students engaging in this behavior may be subject to disciplinary actions including but not limited to: loss of bus riding privileges, parent conference, detention, suspension, or expulsion from school, and police referral.
