Bullying and Harassment

The school district believes that standards for student behavior must be set cooperatively through interaction among the students, parents/legal guardians, staff, and community members creating an atmosphere that encourages students to grow in self-discipline. The development of this atmosphere requires respect for self and others, as well as for district and community property on the part of students, staff, and community members. Since students learn by example, school administrators, faculty, staff, and volunteers will demonstrate appropriate behavior, treat others with civility and respect, and refuse to tolerate bullying or harassment (M-DCPS Code of Student Conduct).

The school district upholds that bullying or harassment of any student or school employee is prohibited:

During any education program or activity conducted by M-DCPS;
During any school-related or school-sponsored program or activity;
On a M-DCPS school bus;
Through the use of any electronic device or data while on school grounds or on a M-DCPS school bus, or computer software that is accessed through a computer or computer network of M-DCPS.

Through threats using the above to be carried out on school grounds. This includes threats made outside of school hours, which are intended to be carried out during any school-related or school-sponsored program or activity, or on a M-DCPS school bus.
