 Bullying


(From
BISD’s
Code
of
Conduct)
 
 
Bullying
means
engaging
in
wriCen
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
acKon
or
threat
creates
an
 
inKmidaKng,
threatening,
or
abusive
educaKonal
environment
for
the
 
student
(Texas
EducaKon
Code
25.0342).
 
No
student
shall
engage
in
any
form
of
bullying,
nor
shall
any
student
 
encourage
or
assist
any
other
person
in
bullying.

 Staff:
Are
you
a
bully?
 In
addiKon
to
the
state’s
definiKon
of
bullying,
staff
also
bully
when
 they
consistently
use
degrading
negaKve
comments
openly
about
 a
student
or
students.
Whether
this
is
one
student
or
a
whole
 class,
it
is
sKll
bullying.

 Cyberbullying
 Bullying
doesn’t
just
happen
face
to
face.
It
includes
electronic
 communicaKons,
including:
e‐mail,
Facebook,
TwiCer,
text
 messaging,
etc.

  5. 5. Community
of
Respect
Everywhere
 What
Bullying
is
Not
 Bullying
does
not
include
normal
childhood
behavior
such
as
sibling
rivalry
or
one‐on‐one
 fighKng
of
siblings
or
peers
with
compeKng
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
oXen
related
to
a
physical
or
mental
 handicap,
such
as
auKsm
or
Asperger’s
syndrome
(high
funcKoning
auKsm),
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
aCack
by
a
 bully,
but
it
is
not
bullying.
 Bullying
does
not
include
criminal
acKviKes
that
may
have
begun
as
a
conflict
and
 escalated.

 Teasing
vs
Taun:ng:
There
is
a
difference
 Teasing
is
a
fun
thing
you
can
do
with
your
friends‐‐–with
people
you
care
about.
 TaunKng
is
a
choice
to
bully
someone
for
whom
you
have
contempt.
 Teasing
 1.  Allows
the
teaser
and
person
teased
to
swap
roles
with
ease.
 2.  Isn’t
intended
to
hurt
the
other
person.
 3.  Maintains
the
basic
dignity
of
everyone
involved.
 4.  Pokes
fun
in
a
lighthearted,
clever,
and
benign
way.
 5.  Is
meant
to
get
both
parKes
to
laugh.
 6.  Is
only
a
small
part
of
the
acKviKes
shared
by
kids
who
have
something
in
common.
 7.  Is
innocent
in
moKve.
 8.  Is
disconKnued
when
person
teased
becomes
upset
or
objects
to
the
teasing.

  7. 7. Community
of
Respect
Everywhere
 Taun)ng
 1.  Is
based
on
an
imbalance
of
power
and
is
one‐sided:
the
bully
taunts,
the
bullied
 kid
is
taunted.
 2.  Is
intended
to
harm.
 3.  Involves
humiliaKng,
cruel,
demeaning,
or
bigoted
comments
thinly
disguised
as
 jokes.
 4.  Includes
laughter
directed
at
the
target,
not
with
the
target.
 5.  Is
meant
to
diminish
the
sense
of
self‐worth
of
the
target.
 6.  Induces
fear
of
further
taunKng
or
can
be
a
prelude
to
physical
bullying.
 7.  Is
sinister
in
moKve.
 8.  ConKnues
especially
when
targeted
kids
become
distressed
or
object
to
the
taunt.

  8. 8. Community
of
Respect
Everywhere
 Flir:ng
vs.
Sexual
Bullying
 Flir:ng
 1.  Allows
and
invites
both
persons
to
swap
roles
with
ease.

 2.  Isn’t
intended
to
hurt
the
other
person—is
an
expression
of
desire.

 3.  Maintains
the
basic
dignity
of
both
persons.
 4.  Is
meant
to
be
flaCering
and
complimentary.
 5.  Is
an
invitaKon
to
have
fun
together
and
enjoy
each
other’s
company.
 6.  Invited
sexual
aCenKon.
 7.  Is
intended
to
make
the
other
person
feel
wanted,
aCracKve,
and
in
control.
 8.  Is
disconKnued
when
the
person
who
is
being
flirted
with
becomes
upset,
objects
to
the
flirKng,
or
 is
not
interested.
 FlirKng
has
playfulness
about
it
that
sexual
bullying
does
not.

It
is
never
intended
to
harm
and
is
an
 invitaKon
for
two
people
to
get
to
know
each
other
beCer.

As
with
any
other
invitaKon,
it
can
be
 accepted
or
rejected—and
the
person
who
iniKated
the
flirKng
honors
either
response.

  9. 9. Community
of
Respect
Everywhere
 Sexual
Bullying
 1.  Is
based
on
an
imbalance
of
power
and
is
one‐sided:

the
bully
sexually
taunts,
the
bullied
kid
is
 demeaned
and
degraded.
 2.  Is
intended
to
harm
and
exploit.
 3.  Is
invasive
and
intended
to
assert
the
status
of
the
bully.

 4.  Is
intended
to
be
degrading
and
demeaning.

 5.  Is
intended
to
express
control
and
dominaKon.

 6.  Is
intended
to
violate
the
boundaries
of
the
target.

 7.  Is
intended
to
make
the
other
person
feel
rejected,
ugly,
powerless,
or
uncomfortable.
 8.  ConKnues
especially
when
targeted
kid
becomes
distressed
or
objects
to
the
sexual
comment.

 In
sexual
bullying
there
is
no
invitaKon—just
an
aCack.

The
target
is
embarrassed,
humiliated,
and
 shamed
and
tends
to
feel
powerless.

It
is
not
the
intenKon
of
the
bully
to
engage
in
healthy
sexual
 flirtaKon
with
another
person—the
aCack
is
meant
to
hurt.

If
the
target
protests,
he/she
is
oXen
 labeled
a
“bitch”
who
is
upKght
and
can’t
take
a
joke.
