9 Why #2: Legislative expansion of harassment/ intimidation/bullying…and reporting requirements? Legislative Definition: "Harassment, intimidation or bullying" means any intentional gesture, or any intentional electronic, written, verbal or physical act, communication, transmission or threat that: (a) a reasonable person under the circumstances should know will have the effect of any one or more of the following: (1) physically harming a student; (2) damaging a student's property; (3) placing a student in reasonable fear of harm to his or her person; or (4) placing a student in reasonable fear of damage to his or her property; or (b) is sufficiently severe, persistent or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, threatening or emotionally abusive educational environment for a student; or (c) disrupts or interferes with the orderly operation of the school. Clinical Definition: Bullying occurs when a person is exposed repeatedly and over time to negative actions on the part of one or more persons… bullying has four elements: (a) an imbalance of power (physical, intellectual, or emotional) (b) the action is repeated over time, (c) the action is intentional, and (d) there is an unequal display of emotion (Olweus, 1993). 9
