    What is Bullying? 

    The uniform definition describes bullying as "any unwanted aggressive behavior(s) by another youth or group of youths who are not siblings or current dating partners that involves an observed or perceived power imbalance and is repeated multiple times or is highly likely to be repeated."

    • There is aggressive behavior by another student or group of students  
    • The behavior creates an imbalance of power between the bully and the victim, either socially or emotionally
    • The behavior has been repeated
