Safe Positive Schools
The Oskayak High School Code of Conduct - defines the values and vision of the school community in which all relationships are conducted in a respectful and dignified manner. In our school, each person has the right and responsibility to contribute to a safe, positive learning environment. It is with this vision the issue of bullying will be dealt with.
Bullying is a particularly aggressive form of violence for which the staff of Oskayak High School has very little tolerance. A student is bullied when he or she is repeatedly exposed to negative actions on the part of one or more students causing emotional, psychological, and/or physical harm. These negative actions are considered intentional and hurtful. Bullying can be verbal, physical, relational, or reactive. Bullying involves an imbalance of power, creates fear, and is not gender specific. Bullying may involve racist and homophobic words or actions as well as cyber-bullying threats.
