Bullying Prevention

What is Bullying?

Traditionally, bullying is recognized and defined by three primary characteristics.  It is aggressive behavior that:
  • Is usually repeated over time
  • Occurs in a relationship where there is a power imbalance
  • Intends to cause harm or distress and/or has a serious harmful or distressing effect on the target

We believe:

  • Bullying is mean or hurtful behavior that keeps happening.  It is unfair and one-sided.
  • Bullying is not safe, respectful, or kind.  It is against the rules.
  • Recognizing bullying is the first step in getting it to stop.
We respond by following the Three Rs:
  • Recognize
  • Refuse
  • Report
