Bullying Policy
From the Sciotoville Elementary Academy Handbook:

BULLYING The Governing Board prohibits bullying activities. O.R.C. 3313.666 defines bullying as either 1. Any intentional written, verbal, electronic or physical act that a student has exhibited toward another particular student more than once and the behavior both (a) causes mental or physical harm to the other student and (b) is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, threatening or abusive educational environment for the other student, or 2. Violence within a dating relationship. 3. These acts may occur at school, on school transportation, on school grounds, at school functions sponsored by the school. Electronic Act will be defined as an act committed through the use of a cellular phone, computer, pager, personal communication device, other electronic communication device, or through the use of social media. Permission, consent, or assumption of risk by an individual subjected to hazing does not lessen the prohibition contained in this policy. No administrator, faculty member, or other employee of the District shall encourage, permit, overlook, or endure bullying activities. Students shall not plan, encourage, or engage in hazing. These acts may be reported to any staff member, administrator, or employee of the Sciotoville Community Schools. Anyone who makes a report of hazing or bullying may choose to remain anonymous. Anyone making a false report or giving false information may be held responsible for giving false information.
