"Bullying" refers to verbal, physical or mental acts committed by a student to harass, intimidate or cause harm to another student. Bullying may include verbal threats, physical assault, intimidation or other forms of inappropriate behavior, such as harassment, disorderly conduct and acts which disturb the peace. Because bullying on school campuses is a growing concern, parents, school districts and students should be aware of the serious violations and violence that may occur as a result of student bullying, and how it may be addressed.
Our team is skilled at assisting school districts in implementing "anti-bullying" programs that promote school safety and reduce school violence. Special attention is paid to the creation of policies for prevention, training and enforcement concerning behavior that may lead to bullying.
