Bullying, Harassment, or Intimidation

The Ocean City School District is committed to providing an environment in which students and staff are able to learn, socialize and work free of the fear of harassment, intimidation or bullying (HIB).  These actions are serious and will not be tolerated.

Bullying, harassment, or intimidation means intentional conduct, including verbal, physical, or written conduct or an intentional electronic communication that creates a hostile educational environment by substantially interfering with a student's educational benefits, opportunities, or performance, or with a student's physical or psychological well-being and is:

• Motivated by an actual or a perceived personal characteristic including race, national origin, marital status, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, ancestry, physical attributes, socioeconomic status, familial status, or physical or mental disability; or,

• threatening or seriously intimidating; and,

• occurs on school property, at a school activity or event, or on a school bus; or,

• substantially disrupts the orderly operation of a school.

"Electronic communication" means a communication transmitted by means of an electronic device, including a telephone, cellular phone, computer, or pager.
