Harassment Intimidation and Bullying

The North Kitsap School District is committed to a safe and civil educational environment for all students, employees, parents/legal guardians, volunteers, and community members free from harassment, intimidation, or bullying.

“Harassment, intimidation or bullying” means any intentionally written message (or image including those that are transmitted), verbal, or physical act, including but not limited to one shown to be motivated by race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation including gender expression or identity, mental or physical disability or other distinguishing characteristics when the act physically harms a student or damages the student’s property; has the effect of substantially interfering with a student’s education; is so severe, persistent or pervasive that it creates an intimidating or threatening educational environment; or has the effect of substantially disrupting the orderly operation of the school.

If your child feels he/she has been harassed or bullied, the incident(s) should be reported immediately to a teacher, counselor, or principal.
