District 196 is committed to educating all students to reach their full potential by providing a wide array of opportunities to be successful. In our schools, that begins with a safe and welcoming environment in which to learn.
In accordance with the Safe and Supportive Minnesota Schools Act, we affirm that students have the right to be safe and free from threatening situations while on school property, at school activities and in district vehicles. Bullying interferes with students’ ability to learn and teachers’ ability to educate. It is our intent to prevent bullying from occurring, and to investigate and respond to any instance of bully that has not been prevented.
Bullying is defined as intimidating, threatening, abusive or harming conduct that is objectively offensive and there is an actual or perceived imbalance of power between the student engaging in prohibited conduct and the target of the behavior and the conduct is repeated or forms a pattern; or materially and substantially interferes with a student's educational opportunities or performance of ability to participate in school functions or activities or receive school benefits, services or privileges.
Cyberbullying is using technology or other electronic communication, including but not limited to a transfer of a sign, signal, writing, image, sound or data, including a post on a social network Internet website or forum, transmitted through a computer, cell phone or other electronic device.
Bullying behavior is not acceptable. If you are subjected to bullying or see it happening, report the incident to a staff member right away. The designated person to receive bullying reports and ensure the policy is enforced at Eastview High School is listed below. For more information about reporting and responding to bullying and a comprehensive definition of bullying, view our Administrative Regulation 503.8AR, Bullying Prohibition or District Procedure 503.8P, Report of Bullying Behavior.
