Zero Tolerance for Bullying

Zero Tolerance for Bullying
Newark Junior High's Committment
Our school district has placed student safety as a top priority to ensure that every student feels safe while attending any campus. The District and our schools will not tolerate behavior that infringes on the safety of any student and encourages all students and staff to notify administration immediately when bullying is suspected or witnessed for investigation and appropriate action.
  What Bullying Is
  • Harassment of students
  • Intimidation
  • Hazing or any initiation activity
  • Ridicule
  • Extortion
  • Verbal, written, or electronic communication
  • Physical contact
  • Talking, or using electronic means, to communicate to others that bullying is taking place or has taken place (i.e. video-recording a fight, texting about an incident that took place)
  • Cyberbullying (electronic communication):
    • Post harassing images
    • Post threats
    • Post social cruelty
    • Send harmful messages (text, post), images, or sounds
    • Includes all technology, such as cell phones, Internet, social networking sites, or any other digital technologies
  • Physical contact
  • Anything repeated over time that causes or threatens to cause bodily harm or emotional suffering, which ultimately creates a hostile learning environment or disrupts the normal operation of a school, classroom, or school-related activity.
  When Bullying Occurs
Students who engage in bullying (including cyberbullying) on campus, traveling to or from school, at school functions, or in a manner otherwise related to school attendance shall be subject to school/District disciplinary procedures. Students may be subject to school/District disciplinary action even if bullying takes place off-campus should it include obscene, libelous, or slanderous communication, or when such expression poses a threat to the safety of other students, staff, school property, or disrupts the educational program.
  What You Can Do
If you are a victim of bullying or know someone who is, please take a moment to either tell a staff member or an administrator.
