Bullying Definition

BRHS Bullying and Harassment Procedures
Harassment and abuse are violations of school district policies, rules and regulations and, in some cases, may also be a violation of criminal or other laws.  BRHS has the authority to report students violating this rule to law enforcement officials.

Students who feel that they have been harassed should:

Communicate to the harasser that the student expects the behavior to stop, if the student is comfortable doing so.  If the student needs assistance communicating with the harasser, the student should ask the counselor, teacher, principal or trusted adult for help.If the harassment continues, the student will need to report it to a teacher, counselor or principal.

School Administration will begin the investigation and meet with the harasser to process the bullying and harassment issue.  If the issue is severe enough an immediate consequence will be issued.  The school official will contact the parent/guardian of the harasser and the victim making them aware of the situation.

If there is another reported incident of bullying or harassment by the same student, then the consequences will increase and the School Safety Officer/LKSD Safety Office/Bethel Police Department can be involved.

How to Report Bullying at BRHS:

If you are not comfortable reporting the issue to a school employee, please tell a trusted adult and ask them to contact the school.

Report the issue to the school social worker or school administration. Your school social worker or school administration will then investigate the issue and act accordingly.

Fill out the Bullying Online Report Form. This form will be sent to school administration who will work with the Behavior Interventionist to investigate (link to form is below).
