Understanding Bullying

Pittsfield School Board Policy JICK defines bullying consistently with state law as follows:

Bullying is hereby defined as a single significant incident or a pattern of incidents involving a written, verbal, or electronic communication, or a physical act or gesture, or any combination thereof, directed at another pupil which:

  • Physically harms a pupil or damages the pupil’s property,
  • Causes emotional distress to a pupil,
  • Interferes with a pupil’s educational opportunities,
  • Creates a hostile educational environment, or
  • Substantially disrupts the orderly operation of the school.

Bullying shall also include actions motivated by an imbalance of power based on a pupil’s actual or perceived personal characteristics, behaviors, or beliefs, or motivated by the pupil’s association with another person and based on the other person’s characteristics, behaviors, or beliefs.

The University of New Hampshire Cooperative Extension’s Understanding Bullying (https://extension.unh.edu/resources/files/Resource001364_Rep1823.pdf) provides us with very helpful information and suggestions on addressing bullying among our children. (more…)
