Louisiana Virtual Charter Academy

is a Bully Free Zone!

Bullying
Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Both students who are bullied and who bully others may have serious lasting problems.

In order to be considered bullying, the behavior must be aggressive and include:

1. An imbalance of power: kids who bully use their power-such as physical strength, access to embarrassing information or popularity-to control or harm others over time and in different situations, even if they involve the same people.

2. Repetition: Bullying behaviors happen more than once or have the potential to happen more than once.
speaks out 
Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally and excluding someone from a group on purpose.
 

LAVCA's bullying policy


The following factors will be considered in determining the appropriate response to pupils who commit one or more acts of harassment, intimidation or bullying:

  • The developmental and maturity levels of the parties involved
  • The levels of harm
  • The surrounding circumstances
  • The nature of the behavior(s)
  • Past incidences or continuing patterns of behavior
  • The relationships between the parties involved
  • The context in which the alleged incidents occurred

Concluding whether a particular action or incident constitutes a violation of this policy requires a determination based on all of the facts and surrounding circumstances.  An appropriate consequence will be determined after meaningful consideration of these factors.

Consequences and appropriate remedial action for pupils who commit acts of harassment, intimidation or bullying may range from counseling interventions up to and including suspension or expulsion.
