Pineland Learning Center (PLC) prohibits acts of harassment, intimidation, or bullying of a student. A safe and civil environment in school is necessary for students to learn and achieve high academic standards. Harassment, intimidation, 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 and disciplined environment. Harassment, intimidation, or bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior that may involve a real or perceived power imbalance. Since students learn by example, school leaders, faculty, staff and volunteers should be commended for demonstrating appropriate behavior, treating others with civility and respect, and refusing to tolerate harassment, intimidation, or bullying.
Sending district Board of Education personnel are required to address harassment, intimidation, and bullying occurring on a sending district Board of Education bus, at a sending district Board of Education school-sponsored function, and off school grounds.
Pineland Learning Center shall address harassment, intimidation, and bullying on PLC's property, at any PLC school-sponsored function, or on a PLC school bus.
