Anti-Bully Anti-Harrassment Policy

ANTI-BULLYING/ANTI-HARASSMENT POLICY

Marshall Academy expects all students, faculty and staff to treat others with dignity and respect. No harassing or bullying behavior will be tolerated.

The Marshall Academy Board of Directors prohibits acts of harassment or bullying. The school board has determined that a safe and civil environment in school is necessary for students to learn and achieve high academic standards. Harassment or bullying, like other disruptive or violent behaviors, is conduct that disrupts both a student’s ability to learn and a school’s ability to educate its students in a safe environment. Demonstration of appropriate behavior, treating others with civility and respect, and refusing to tolerate harassment or bullying is expected of administrators, faculty, staff, and volunteers to provide positive examples for student behavior.

Any student who engages in behavior that reflects harassment or bullying will be subject to suspension or expulsion.

Consequences for Anti-Bullying Policy

First and foremost, it must be established, without reasonable doubt, that bullying did actually take place, and student action has prohibited a safe and civil environment for the school.

Students in grades K-6 will be addressed on a case-by-case basis with elementary faculty and administration.

Student in grades 7-12 will follow the following steps:

  1. With official, written, and valid complaint filed, student will meet with administration, and parents if deemed necessary, and discuss the complaint, upon which time the student will receive a warning.
  2. If second official, written, and valid complaint is filed and student has not shown effort to improve, the student will serve a two day suspension from school, receiving zero daily grades in each class missed.
  3. If third official, written, and valid complaint is filed, and student has still shown no effort to improve, student will be expelled from Marshall Academy.
