What is Bullying?
Students are being bullied when another student or several other students:
Say mean and hurtful things to them or make fun of them
Completely ignore or exclude them from things on purpose
Hit, kick, push, shove around, or lock them inside a room
Tell lies, spread false rumors about them or students dislike them
A N D. . . . . .
These things happen REPEATEDLY
It is difficult for the student being bullied to defend himself or herself

Aggressive behavior is NOT always bullying, even though it is not acceptable
Negative, mean behavior that occurs repeatedly (a week or more) and is characterized by an imbalance of power or strength
