  • Some students are hesitant of going to school mainly because they are afraid to be bullied. Bullying is a kind of issue that needs to be tackled right away, I have come up with a solution which I find very useful. I provided my son a safety service called panic button. It is an application that can be easily downloaded to all smart phones. You can check their site http://safekidzone.com/eMail/RelentlessProtection/

Why School Bullying Should Be Taken Seriously - Special Education Attorney Why School Bullying Should Be Taken Seriously - Special Education Attorney Presentation Transcript

  • Why School Bullying Should Be Taken Seriously
  • Today a tragic post about a 15 year old girl landed in my email. The girl committed suicide as the result of bullying.
  • In California, legislation has beenenacted to prevent bullying in schools, however, as parents navigating the world of bullying has become complicated given all of the social media outlets out there for posting harassing and inappropriate comments.
  • The relevant laws related to bullying include, but are not limited to: § 48900.4. Additional grounds forsuspension or expulsion; harassment, threats, or intimidation
  • In addition to the grounds specified in Sections 48900 and 48900.2, a pupil enrolled in any of grades 4 to 12, inclusive, may be suspended fromschool or recommended for expulsion if the superintendent or the principal of the school
  • in which the pupil is enrolled determines that the pupil hasintentionally engaged in harassment, threats, or intimidation, directed against school district personnel or pupils, that is sufficiently severe or pervasive to have the actual and reasonably expected effect of materially disrupting classwork, creating substantial disorder… .
  • In addition, the students in the above scenario are facing criminal charges.
  • For many children, communicating to their parents or getting help is a nonexistent option. For children whoare disabled, sensitive to social norms or simply afraid to be different,bullying can rise to the level of trauma.
  • We hope that parents, educators, counselors and all adults who workwith children in our schools take veryseriously all forms of bullying whether it is in writing or it involves some physical abuse.
  • While this is not intended as legaladvice, if you believe that your child may be the subject of bullying consider the following:
  • 1. If you are the parent of a child with special needs, consider asking for supports in the IEP such as extra counselling, behavior services orsupervision during unstructured time.
  • 2. If your child is not disabled, and you are aware of bullying or suspect your child is being bullied, immediately contact the school administration in writing and file a formal complaint.
  • 3. Sometimes it is necessary to seek arestraining order and this can be done through the Court system. See e.g.http://www.courtinfo.ca.gov/selfhelp/ protection/introresord.htm
  • This post is not intended as legaladvice. If you believe you require legaladvice, you should seek a consultation or to retain an attorney.
