Information about Prevention of Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying
In 2010 the Washington State Legislature passed Substitute House Bill 2801, a law prohibiting harassment, intimidation, and bullying (HIB) in Washington’s schools. The law communicates our State’s strong stand against HIB behaviors in our schools. Every adult in Deer Park Schools takes HIB issues seriously and we work diligently with students to eradicate such behaviors in our schools; that said, as we all know, it’s a battle we must fight continuously.
OSPI’s School Safety Center has published the following:
RCW 28A.300.285 defines harassment, intimidation and bullying as any intentionally written message or image—including those that are electronically 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 an 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.
- Has the effect of substantially disrupting the orderly operation of the school.
Bullying is repeated negative behavior toward a less powerful person or persons. Hitting, name-calling, shunning, and shaming are all forms of bullying. Spreading rumors, gossiping and making threats are also forms of bullying. For further information in cyberbullying, see Safety Center Internet Safety.
Deer Park’s official policy (3207) and procedure (3207P) can be found in the Policy & Procedure section on the Board of Directors web page. Victims of harassment, intimidation, or bullying are encouraged to fill out the HIB Incident Reporting Form, submitting it to the building principal or Deer Park’s HIB compliance office, Mr. Greg Swartz, Director of Special Education for Deer Park Schools (464.5525).
