"Bullying, harassment, and intimidation" means any gesture, written or verbal expression, electronic communication, or physical act that a reasonable person should know will harm another student, damage another student's property, place another student in reasonable fear of harm to the student's person or damage to teh student's property, or insult or demean any student or group of students in such a way as to disrupt or interfere with the school's educational mission or the education of a student.
Students and personnel are to immediately report observed or suspected bullying to the instructor and/or administration. The report will be investigated and any appropriate action taken, which may include suspension from school for students found to have violated this policy. Depending on the situation it may also be necessary to report the incident to law enforcement authorities.
Western Technology Center has made available an anonymous CyberBullying hotline for students and staff. This hotline can be used to report any form of bullying or a threat to specific students or the school in general. Additionally, the hotline can be used to report illegal activity.
