Policy 3706 and Procedure 3706   -  Prohibition of Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying, were revised according to new state law and adopted in June 2011. These confirm the district's commitment to a safe and civil educational environment for all students, employees, parents/legal guardians, volunteers, and patrons that is free from harassment, intimidation or bullying. They define these terms and associated behaviors, and they note trainings and interventions among other related information.
 
Harassment and bullying are clearly defined by the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. OSPI also has information on their School Safety Center website about bullying and harassment. Other resources include two FAQ Powerpoint presentations: one on Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying and a second on Cyberbullying.
 
If you need to report an incident, please use the Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying Reporting Form..
