Anti-Bullying Policy

Bullying affects students across the nation every day. Bullies use physical, verbal, and emotional attacks that are communicated in person or via the internet, text messages, or other electronic means. According to the State of Michigan, Cyberbullying has become one of the fastest growing forms of bullying as well as the most prevalent. It can be devastating to young people, as it follows them into their homes.

Under Matt’s Safe School Law, every school is required to adopt an anti-bullying policy. Matt’s Law defines bullying as any “written, verbal, or physical act, or any electronic communication that is intended or that a reasonable person would know is likely to harm one or more pupils.” The policy must name the school officials responsible for ensuring its implementation and must have procedures for notifying the parents or legal guardians of a student who has been the target of bullying. Furthermore, the school must have a procedure for reporting an act of bullying and how it investigates bullying incidents.
