BMS Harrassment, Intimidation and Bullying

Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying - BMS

The Somerset Hills School District Board of Education prohibits acts of harassment, intimidation, or bullying of a pupil.  A safe and civil environment in school is necessary for pupils to learn and achieve high academic standards.  Harassment, intimidation, or bullying, like other disruptive or violent behaviors, is conduct that disrupts both a pupil’s ability to learn and a school’s ability to educate its pupils in a safe and disciplined environment.  Since pupils learn by example, school administrators, faculty, staff and volunteers should be commended for demonstrating appropriate behavior, treating others with civility and respect, and refusing to tolerate harassment, intimidation, or bullying.
