Benjamin Logan Local Schools Bullying Policy
This is the image for the news article titled Benjamin Logan Local Schools Bullying PolicyWhile we know bullying takes place in our schools, we also know that very few incidents meet the criteria of the Benjamin Logan Schools Bullying Policy. Last semester, our principals reported 2 incidents that met our bullying criteria. The Benjamin Logan Local Schools Bullying Policy is as follows:

Harassment, intimidation, or bullying means any intentional written, verbal, graphic, or physical act that a student or a group of students exhibits toward another particular student(s) more than once and the behavior both causes mental or physical harm to the other student(s) and is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, threatening, or abusive educational environment for the other student(s).

This policy has been developed in consultation with parents, District employees, volunteers, students, and community members as prescribed in R.C. 3313.666 and the State Board of Education's Model Policy.
