Anti-Bullying Policy; Title IX and Section 504

Anti-bullying Information:

The Hatikvah International Academy Charter School Board of Trustees prohibits acts of  harassment, intimidation, or bullying of pupils (and employees). 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 and disciplined environment. 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.
