Anti-Bullying Efforts

Commitment to Safety

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 playground 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

Do you believe you have been bullied? Below are steps students can take to get help:

Let an adult know right away! This can be your teacher, counselor or parent.

Resources

OHP Board Policy

In July of 2003, the Board of Education adopted a policy against bullying.
Here is a copy of that policy:

5517.01 - BULLYING AND OTHER FORMS OF AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIOR

Crisis Text Line

A simple text message — 4HOPE — can unlock a wealth of resources for individuals who are struggling emotionally or with suicide or substance abuse and could potentially avert a crisis situation.

These resources are available to area residents through a new and confidential Crisis Text Line. Community members can text “4HOPE” to the number 741 741, with the promise of being connected to a trained crisis counselor within five minutes.

OHP Stand Fast Task Force

Hold your ground and help each other!

The Ohio Hi-Point Stand Fast Task Force promotes anti-bullying awareness and is proactive about how we treat each other at OHP and within the community.
