Harassment, Intimidation, Bullying

Harassment, Intimidation, or Bullying:

By Washington state law and by Edmonds School District policy, acts of harassment, intimidation or bullying will not be tolerated in schools. (Our Brier Elementary Discipline Policy provides specific consequences for this behavior.) Harassment, intimidation or bullying is defined as an intentional written, verbal, or physical act which:

  • Physically or emotionally harms a student or damages the student's property; or
  • Has the effect of substantially interfering with a student's education; or
  • Is so severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating or threatening educational environment; or
  • Has the effect of substantially disrupting the orderly operation of the school.

Harassment, intimidation or bullying can take many forms including slurs, rumors, jokes, innuendos, demeaning comments, drawings, cartoons, pranks, gestures, physical attacks, threats or other written, verbal or physical actions. School employees, students, parents or volunteers who have witnessed, or have reliable information that a student has been subjected to such acts, are expected to report the incidents to the school.
