Butler Tech does not tolerate harassment, intimidation, bullying or dating violence of any student on District property or at District-sponsored events. The Board’s commitment to addressing such prohibited behavior involves a multifaceted approach, which includes education and the promotion of a school atmosphere in which harassment, intimidation, bullying or dating violence will not be tolerated by students, staff or administration.
Harassment, intimidation or bullying means any intentional written, verbal or physical act, including those activities engaged in via computer or electronic communication devices, that a student has exhibited toward another particular student more than once and the behavior both: (1) causes mental or physical harm to the other student; and (2) is sufficiently severe, persistent or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, threatening or abusive educational environment for the other student. Dating violence means a pattern of behavior or actions where a person uses or threatens physical, sexual, verbal or emotional abuse to control the person’s dating partner, including activities engaged in via computer or electronic communication devices.
To report bullying or harassment, please complete the Bullying Incident Complaint Form. The form can be submitted to any school personnel. You are not required to include your name on the form and may submit a report anonymously.
