Bullying/Sexual Harassment Guidance Lesson 14-15
Transcript of Bullying/Sexual Harassment Guidance Lesson 14-15
Bullying and Sexual Harassment
“Any willful attempt or threat to inflict injury on another person, when accompanied by an apparent present ability to do so”
“Any intentional display of force such as would give the victim reason to fear or expect immediate bodily injury or harm”
“Any intentional written, verbal, or physical act, which a reasonable person would perceive as being intended to threaten, harass, or intimidate that: a) causes substantial physical harm; b) substantially interferes with a student’s education; c) is so severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating/threatening educational environment; or d) disrupts the orderly operation of the school”
(GCPS 2015-2016 Student/Parent Handbook).
Bullying (as defined by Gwinnett County)
“Upon finding that a student in grades 6-12 has committed the offense of bullying for the third time in a school year, such student shall be assigned to an alternative school.”
“Retaliation for reports of bullying will not be tolerated and will be subject to independent disciplinary action.
"The prohibition against bullying includes off-campus cyberbullying that is (1) directed specifically at students or school personnel; (2) is maliciously intended for the purpose of threatening the safety of those specified or substantially disrupting the orderly operation of the school; and (3) creates a reasonable fear of harm to the students' or school personnel's person or property or has a high likelihood of succeeding in that purpose” (GCPS 2015-2016 Student/Parent Handbook).
Consequences for Bullying
Inappropriate touching (sexual harassment), taking or damaging other’s property, hitting or kicking
Using words to hurt another person: name-calling, racist comments, constant teasing, inappropriate comments (sexual harassment)
Telling friends to reject a certain person
Bullying that takes place on the internet, through text messages, or other forms of technology
There are four types of bullies:
Physical Sexual Harassment
Any unwanted touching including, but
not limited to, the following:
Purposely rubbing or bumping into someone
Blocking someone’s way
Comments about body parts
Spreading sexual rumors
Notes that include sexual content
Graffiti of sexual nature on desks or bathroom walls
Using sexual orientation as an insult
Repeatedly asking someone out
Verbal Sexual Harassment
Suggestive facial expressions (winking, licking lips, staring)
Sexual pictures, drawings, books, or stories
Gestures with the hands or body
Not respecting personal space
Non-Verbal Sexual Harassment
The victim’s perception is what matters in a case of sexual harassment, not the harasser’s intent—even if the intent was to flirt or compliment. It’s also important to know that males can sexually harass other males and that females can sexually harass other females.
It’s in the eye of the beholder.
What should you do if you feel you’re being sexually harassed or bullied?
Communicate to your harasser (what you’re feeling and that you want/expect the behavior to stop).
If the behavior is repeated, go to a person in authority (assistant principal, counselor, or teacher). Severe and/or repeated inappropriate behavior will likely result in a referral for the harasser.
