Bullying Policy

Sunset School is committed to providing all students with a safe and civil school environment in which all members of the school community are treated with dignity and respect.  In accordance with federal, state, and local policies, procedures and practices, Sunset School expressly prohibits bullying, harassment, or intimidation of any person by any means or method on school property, on school vehicles, at designated bus stops, or at any school related function or activity, or by use of data or software that is accessed through a computer, computer system, computer network, or other electronic technology of a local school system.

Students who witness bullying or who are victims of bullying behaviors should make a report to a teacher or school administrator so that an appropriate investigation can take place.  If after an investigation a student is found to be in violation of the Code of Conduct bullying policy, the student shall be disciplined by appropriate measures up to and including suspension and expulsion.  Retaliation following a report of bullying is strictly prohibited and may result in strong disciplinary action.
