    Bullying is NOT okay in SCUCISD



             In SCUC, student conduct is considered “bullying" if it:

    1. Exploits an imbalance of power between the student perpetrator and the student victim through:

    • written expression
    • verbal expression
    • expression through electronic means (cyberbullying)
    • physical contact

    2. Interferes with a student’s education or substantially disrupts the operation of a school.

    3. Occurs:

    • on school property
    • at a school-sponsored
    • school related activity
    • in a vehicle operated by the district


    Bullying is continued abuse of power that is intentionally hurtful. 

    Bullying is NOT part of normal conflict.

    Bullying is typically NOT a one-time occurrence

    Bullying, in its most basic form, is abuse, harassment, and/or violence.


    What to do?

    With bullying, there is usually an imbalance of strength or power, threats of further aggression and intent to harm. Every student has a right to feel safe while they are at school.  Bullying is a violation of state law, school district policy, and the SCUCISD Student Code of Conduct. Any student who believes they have been bullied should report it immediately to a teacher or adult on campus. Likewise, parents or SCUCISD employees who witness a bullying incident should take immediate action and report the incident to the school administration, in accordance with District policy.  A  Bullying Incident Report Form may be requested in the school office. Once a report of a bullying incident is received, an investigation of the allegations will be conducted by campus administration.
