The Board of Trustees believes that all students have a right to a safe and healthy school environment. To that end, the district, schools and community have an obligation to promote mutual respect, tolerance and acceptance.

Such behavior includes direct physical contact, such as hitting or shoving, verbal assaults, such teasing or name-calling; and social isolation or manipulation. This policy applies whenever a student is on school grounds, traveling to and from school or a school sponsored activity, during the lunch period, whether on or off campus, and during, a school-sponsored activity.
