"Bullying” is a way of using power aggressively in which a person is subjected to intentional, unwanted and unprovoked hurtful verbal and/or physical actions. An act of bullying results in the targeted student feeling oppressed, fearful, distressed, injured, or uncomfortable. The aggression is repeated on more than one occasion and can include: physical, verbal, emotional, racial, sexual, written, electronic, damage to property, social exclusion, and intimidation. Bullying may be motivated by actual or perceived characteristics such as race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation or identity, mental, physical or academic disability. Bullying often takes place in a social context. Cyberbullying is a form of bullying.
La Cueva High School shall consider bullying, or behavior that displays the characteristics of bullying, which occurs in a digital or cyber environment the same as bullying occurring in a traditional or physical environment. La Cueva High School therefore prohibits bullying in a digital or cyber environment by all members of the school community with the use of district technology or personal electronic devices whether on or off campus. Those who encourage bullying in a digital or cyber environment may be subject to corrective action. La Cueva High School may take corrective action if a member of the school community has committed an act of bullying in a digital or cyber environment outside of these times/locations and that act of bullying lead to the disruption of a safe, respectful and fear-free environment for another member of the school community.
