 Where
have
we
been?
 
The
campus
and
central
office
administra<on
realized
 that
parents
had
made
some
valid
statements
about
a
 need
for
a
full
review
of
all
policies
and
procedures
 rela<ng
to
bullying.
Therefore,
the
superintendent
 assigned
the
emergency
management
team
to
work
on
 a
comprehensive
plan
to
address
the
parents’
concerns.

 BISD
Community
of
Respect
Task
Force
 
A
diverse
group
of
district
and
community
members
were
 invited
to
par<cipate
in
a
task
force
addressing
current
 issues
regarding
bullying
brought
to
our
aDen<on.
Our
goal
 was
to
define,
iden<fy
behaviors,
discuss
posi<ve
responses
 and
develop
a
district
wide
system
to
provide
a
climate
of
 change
beginning
with
the
2010‐11
school
year.

 Bullying


(From
BISD’s
Code
of
Conduct)
 
 
Bullying
means
engaging
in
wriDen
or
verbal
expression
or
physical
conduct
 
that
school
personnel
determine:
 
Will
have
the
effect
of
physically
harming
a
student,
damaging
a
student’s
 
property,
or
placing
a
student
in
reasonable
fear
of
harm
to
the
student’s
 
person
or
of
damage
to
the
student’s
property
or
is
sufficiently
severe,
 
persistent,
or
pervasive
enough
that
the
ac<on
or
threat
creates
an
 
in<mida<ng,
threatening,
or
abusive
educa<onal
environment
for
the
 
student
(Texas
Educa<on
Code
25.0342).
 
No
student
shall
engage
in
any
form
of
bullying,
nor
shall
any
student
 
encourage
or
assist
any
other
person
in
bullying.

 What
Bullying
is
Not
 •  Bullying
does
not
include
normal
childhood
behavior
such
as
sibling
rivalry
or
one‐on‐ one
figh<ng
of
siblings
or
peers
with
compe<ng
claims.

 •  Nor
does
it
include
acts
of
impulsive
aggression‐in
other
words,
aggression
that
is
a
 spontaneous,
indiscriminate
striking
out,
with
no
intended
target.

 •  Such
aggression
is
oYen
related
to
a
physical
or
mental
handicap,
such
as
au<sm
or
 Asperger’s
syndrome
(high
func<oning
au<sm),
and
must
not
be
dismissed
or
excused,
 but
it
is
not
bullying.

 •  Spontaneous,
deliberate,
indiscriminate
striking
out
also
may
be
a
response
by
a
bullied
 kid
to
an
aDack
by
a
bully,
but
it
is
not
bullying.
 Bullying
does
not
include
criminal
ac<vi<es
that
may
have
begun
as
a
conflict
and
escalated.

 Cyberbullying
 Bullying
doesn’t
just
happen
face
to
face.
It
includes
 electronic
communica<ons,
including:
e‐mail,
Facebook,
 TwiDer,
text
messaging,
etc.

 Staff:
Are
you
a
bully?
 In
addi<on
to
the
state’s
defini<on
of
bullying,
staff
also
 bully
when
they
consistently
use
degrading
nega<ve
 comments
openly
about
a
student
or
students.
Whether
 this
is
one
student
or
a
whole
class,
it
is
s<ll
bullying.

 Community
of
Respect
Everywhere,
C.O.R.E.,
is
an
ongoing
ini<a<ve
 throughout
Birdville
ISD
backed
by
the
philosophy
that
promotes
 posi<ve
and
safe
learning
climates
while
developing
 responsibility,
accountability
and
respect.
Each
of
us
teaches
 character
educa<on
by
the
way
we
talk,
the
behaviors
we
model,
 the
conduct
we
tolerate,
the
deeds
we
encourage,
and
the
 expecta<ons
we
transmit.
 It
is
not
one
more
thing
on
our
plate…it
is
the
plate.

 Where
do
we
go
from
here?
 •  District
must
embrace
this
as
a
cri<cal
focus
at
all
levels
 •  Training
for
staff
and
students
must
take
place
and
it
 must
be
throughout
the
year
 •  Every
campus
must
address
this
issue,
determine
a
plan
 to
implement,
and
include
it
in
their
campus
 improvement
plan.
