Anti-Bullying


The Laws


Ohio law requires school policies to use the definition of bullying found in R.C. 3313.666, which defines "harassment, intimidation, or bullying" as:


Any intentional written, verbal, or physical act that a student has exhibited toward another particular student more than once and the behavior both: (a) causes mental or physical harm to the other student; (b) is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, threatening, or abusive educational environment for the other student.


House Bill 116 further requires school districts to establish cyber-bullying policies. Bullying and Other Forms of Aggressive Behavior Policy can be found under the public section of the BoardDoc link on our school website.


In accordance with these laws of the State of Ohio, it is reported that the administrators of the Clinton-Massie Local School District dealt with the following number of incidences of bullying for the first  semester of the 2017-2018 school year:


Clinton-Massie High School: 0

Clinton-Massie Middle School: 0

Clinton-Massie Elementary: 0


In Our District


The Board of Education recognizes that a student has the right to learn in a safe environment. Harassment, intimidation, or bullying behavior by any student is strictly prohibited.


Building principals, assistant principals, and the Superintendent have the responsibility for conducting investigations concerning claims of aggressive behavior and/or bullying. Teachers and other school staff, who witness acts of harassment, intimidation, or bullying, shall promptly notify the building principal and/or his/her designee of the event observed, and shall promptly file a written incident report concerning the events witnessed.


Also in accordance with the laws cited above, Clinton-Massie Local School District has established these avenues for reporting bullying instances.


All complaints will be promptly investigated.
