ANTI- HARASSMENT, ANTI-INTIMIDATION OR ANTI-BULLYING
As per Ohio Legislative House Bill 276, the Ohio State Board of Education ANTI-HARASSMENT, ANTI-INTIMIDATION OR ANTI-BULLYING Model Policy, and this School District’s Board of Education Policy.
Harassment, intimidation, or bullying behavior by any student/school personnel in this school district is strictly prohibited, and such conduct may result in disciplinary action, including suspension and/or expulsion from school.
“Harassment, intimidation, or bullying”, in accordance with Ohio law, means any intentional written, verbal, graphic or physical acts including electronically transmitted acts, i.e., Internet, cell phone, personal digital assistant (PDA), or wireless hand-held device, either overt or covert, by a student or group of students toward other students/school personnel with the intent to harass, intimidate, injure, threaten, ridicule or humiliate. Such behaviors are prohibited on or immediately adjacent to school grounds, at any school-sponsored activity, on school-provided transportation or at any official school bus stop that a reasonable person under the circumstances should know will have the effect of:
■ Causing mental or physical harm to the other student/school personnel including placing an individual in reasonable fear of physical harm and/or damaging of student’s/personal property; and
■ Is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it creates an intimidating, threatening, or abusive educational environment for the other student/school personnel.
Anyone who witnesses or suspects that a student or adult is being harassed, intimidated or bullied in any way should report it immediately to the building principal. Any student who falsifies bullying reports are subject to disciplinary actions.
It is the policy of the Campbell Board of Education and School District that hazing activities of any types are inconsistent with the educational process and shall be prohibited at all times. No administrator, faculty member, or other employee of the school district shall encourage, permit, condone, or tolerate any hazing activities. No student, including leaders of student organizations, shall plan, encourage, or engage in any hazing.
Hazing is defined as doing any act or coercing another, including the victim, to do any act of initiation unto any student or other organization that causes or creates a substantial risk of causing mental or physical harm to any person. Permission, consent, or assumption of risk by an individual subjected to hazing does not lessen the prohibition contained in the policy.
Administrators, faculty members, and all other employees of the school district shall be particularly alert to possible situations, circumstances or events that might include hazing. If hazing and planned hazing is discovered, involved students shall be informed by the discovering school employee of the prohibition contained in this policy and shall be required to end all hazing activities immediately. All hazing incidents shall be reported immediately to the superintendent.
Administrators, faculty members, students, and all other employees who fail to abide by this policy may be subject to criminal penalties in accordance with Ohio Law. In addition, this policy shall be incorporated into the subject of discussion at employee staff meetings or in-service programs.
The Campbell City School District is required each year, per Ohio Revised Code Section 3313.666, to report the number of harrassment/hazing/bullying incidents as defined by the Ohio Department of Education. The information reflects the reported incidents.

P.B.I.S. (Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports)
The Campbell City School District works collaboratively to implement multi-tiered systems of support to meet the behavioral and social emotional needs of ALL students. The schools will implement a behavioral model conducive for learning for ALL students, resulting in increased student engagement and a positive school environment, as measured by walk-throughs and positive events. This will continually decrease absences, disciplinary referrals and incidents as measured by documented referrals. Implementing a school based team will create an incentive-based plan to reinforce and promote positive behavior.
