Bullying Report

The state of Ohio defines bullying with the following criteria:

● Intentional written, verbal, graphic or physical act that a student or group of students exhibited toward another particular student more than once or electronically transmitted acts, i.e., cell phone, personal digital assistance (PDA) or wireless hand­held device that a student has exhibited toward another particular student more than once. The behavior both:

   ○ Causes mental or physical harm to the other student; and

   ○ Is sufficiently severe, persistent or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, threatening or abusive educational environment for the other student. (Ohio Department of Education)

The Oak Hills Local School District holds paramount the safety and security of each and everyone of its students. Recognizing that appropriately resolving interpersonal conflicts can be a challenge to young people as they develop, the school district has engaged in a comprehensive plan to prevent bullying from occurring and to help students learn appropriate conflict resolution skills. Because of our district ­wide effort, Oak Hills has a relatively low incidence or reported bullying. Only a few students experienced sustained difficulty in resolving interpersonal conflicts. We have noted that number of reported incidents of bullying, as well as the results of the investigation that followed each report.
