HIB (Harassment, Intimidation & Bullying Information)

  • The Clifton Public School District has a zero-tolerance policy on bullying. Resources are available for parents and students if you suspect someone has been bullied.

    The Board of Education prohibits acts of harassment, intimidation or bullying. A safe and civil environment in school is necessary for pupils to learn and achieve high academic standards. Harassment, intimidation or bullying, like other disruptive or violent behaviors, is conduct that disrupts both a pupil’s ability to learn and a school’s ability to educate its pupils in a safe environment; and since pupils learn by example, school administrators, faculty, staff and volunteers should be commended for demonstrating appropriate behavior treating others with civility and respect, and refusing to tolerate harassment, intimidation or bullying.

    The Clifton Public School District has a zero-tolerance policy on bullying. Resources are available for parents and students if you suspect someone has been bullied.
