Harassment, Intimidation, and Bullying

Franklin Pierce Schools strives to provide students with optimal conditions for learning by maintaining a school environment where everyone is treated with respect and no one is physically or emotionally harmed.

We encourage students, families, or staff to use Incident Reporting Forms to report all incidents of harassment, intimidation, or bullying.

Harassment, intimidation, or bullying means any intentional electronic, written, verbal, auditory or physical act that:

  • Physically harms a student; or
  • Has the effect of substantially interfering with a student’s education; or
  • Is so severe, persistent or pervasive, that it creates an intimidating or threatening educational environment; or
  • Has the effect of substantially disrupting the orderly operation of the school.
