Ohio Hi-Point Career Center is committed to providing a safe learning environment for all students and that means ensuring that every student can attend school without the fear of harassment. Bullying can happen during or after school hours. While most reported bullying incidents happen at school, a large percentage of bullying happens while going to and from school, on the bus, and even in your neighborhood.

Types of bullying:

  • Physical bullying - actual harm to another individual’s body such as hitting, kicking or punching
  • Verbal bullying - threats, teasing, and/or name calling
  • Social or Relational bullying - gossip, rumors and intentionally leaving someone out of interactions
  • Cyberbullying - repeatedly threatening, defaming, teasing or ridiculing another individual by sending harmful, threatening text or instant messages, for example, or posting derogatory comments or photos on Facebook and other social media platforms
