1. Has the effect or will have the effect of physically harming a student, damaging a student’s property, or placing a student in reasonable fear of harm to the student’s person or of damage to the student’s property; or

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.
