Cyberbullying

Cyberbullying is a very real and very substantial part of today's internet culture. If you or anyone you know is a victim of cyberbullying or cyberstalking, please alert the proper authorities so that it may be stopped and resolved.

Cyberstalking is defined by engaging in a course of conduct to communicate, or to cause to be communicated, words, images, or language by or through the use of electronic mail or electronic communication, directed at a specific person, causing substantial emotional distress to that person and serving no legitimate purpose.

Note

Consequences and remedial action for students who commit acts of bullying or harassment may range from positive behavioral interventions up to and including suspension or expulsion, as outlined in the School District of Escambia County Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook.

Bullying Policy and Definition

Escambia County Policy and Definition

The policy of the Escambia County School District is that all of its students and employees have an educational setting that is safe, secure, and free from harassment and bullying of any kind. The district will not tolerate bullying and harassment of any type.

Bullying means systematically and chronically inflicting physical hurt or psychological distress on one or more students or employees. It is further defined as unwanted and repeated written, verbal, or physical behavior, including any threatening, insulting, or dehumanizing gesture, by a student or adult, that is severe or pervasive enough to create an intimidating, hostile, or offensive educational environment; cause discomfort or humiliation; or unreasonably interfere with the individual’s school performance or participation; and may involve but is not limited to:

a. unwanted teasing

b. social exclusion

c. threat

d. intimidation

e. stalking

f. physical violence

g. theft

h. sexual, religious, or racial harassment

i. public humiliation

j. destruction of property

 

Harassment means any threatening, insulting, or dehumanizing gesture, use of data or computer software, or written, verbal or physical conduct directed against a student or school employee that:

a. places a student or school employee in reasonable fear of harm to his or her person or damage to his or her property;

b. has the effect of substantially interfering with a student’s educational performance, opportunities, or benefits; or

c. has the effect of substantially disrupting the orderly operation of a school.

 

Bullying and harassment also encompasses:

a. Retaliation against a student or school employee by another student or school employee for asserting or alleging an act of bullying or harassment. Reporting an act of bullying or harassment that is not made in good faith is considered retaliation.

b. Perpetuation of conduct listed in the definition of bullying or harassment by an individual or group with intent to demean, dehumanize, embarrass, or cause emotional or physical harm to a student or school employee by:

i. Incitement or coercion;

ii. accessing or knowingly and willingly causing or providing access to data or computer software through a computer, computer system, or computer network within the scope of the district school system; or

iii. acting in a manner that has an effect substantially similar to the effect of bullying or harassment.
