District 196 prohibits all forms of bullying and will take action to stop bullying when there is a connection between the bullying and the school environment.

Bullying is defined as intimidating, threatening, abusive or harming conduct that is objectively offensive and (1) there is an actual or perceived imbalance of power between the student engaging in the conduct and the target of the conduct and the conduct is repeated or forms a pattern or (2) materially and substantially interferes with a student’s educational opportunities or performance or ability to participate in school functions or activities or receive school benefits, services or privileges. Bullying includes various forms of conduct, and includes, but is not limited to cyberbullying, sexual exploitation and malicious and sadistic conduct. More information can be found in District Regulation 503.8AR, Bullying Prohibition.
