Response to Bullying

In accordance with state law, it is the policy of the Wethersfield Board of Education that any form of bullying, whether in the classroom, on school property or at school-sponsored events is expressly forbidden. 

To implement this policy, the Board of Education directs the Superintendent to develop and adopt regulations no later than February 1, 2003 to address the existence of bullying in the schools. As provided by statute, such regulations shall:

“Bullying” shall mean any overt acts by a student or group of students directed against another student with the intent to ridicule, humiliate or intimidate the other student while on school or school-sponsored activity, which acts are repeated against the same student over time. 

“School-Sponsored Activity” shall mean any activity conducted on or off school property (including school buses and other school-related vehicles) that is sponsored, recognized or authorized by the Wethersfield Board of Education.
