Global Purpose Academy is committed to providing all students with a safe and civil environment, and will not tolerate any form of bullying at any school activity.
Bullying shall mean any written, electronic, verbal, physical, or social act that willfully harms another. Aggravated bullying shall mean willful harm motivated by race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, mental disability, physical disability, appearance, or socioeconomic status.
Staff, faculty, and volunteers who observe an act of bullying are expected to take immediate, appropriate steps to intervene. If the staff member or volunteer believes his or her intervention has not resolved the matter, he or she shall report it to the Director and document the incident in writing.
The Director will inform the parent or guardian of any student who was observed as a victim or perpetrator of bullying. Depending on the frequency and severity of the conduct, intervention, counseling, correction, discipline, or referral to law enforcement will be used to remedy the impact on the victim and change the perpetrator’s behavior.
