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

Harassment, intimidation or bullying (HIB) means 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; or
  • Has the effect of substantially disrupting the orderly operation of the school.

Intentional acts refers to the individual’s choice to engage in the act rather than the ultimate impact of the action(s).
