Nevada City School District has developed and adopted policies, procedures, and strategies for bullying prevention and intervention to help keep students safe and ensure a supportive learning environment.
 
As a District, we believe that to effectively address and counteract bullying, we must work as a community and implement policies, procedures, practices, and strategies that support our collective belief that bullying does not belong in our schools. The NCSD Governing Board recognizes the harmful effects of bullying in our community and has adopted the following board policies to provide safe school environments that protects students from physical and emotional harm.
 
Bullying
Bullying is an unwanted, aggressive behavior that involves a real or perceived imbalance of power between individuals with the intent to cause emotional or physical harm. Bullying can be physical, verbal, or social/relational and involves repetition or potential repetition of a deliberate act.
Cyberbullying includes the electronic creation or transmission of harassing communications, direct threats, or other harmful texts, sounds, or images. Cyberbullying also includes breaking into another person’s electronic account or assuming that person’s online identity in order to damage that person’s reputation. 
Stopbullying.gov is a national organization that provides information for students and adults defining bullying/cyberbullying, and offering advice on how to address the issues, resources, and materials.

Positive Learning Environment
Nevada City School District believes in a whole-child approach to supporting student achievement. This integrated and comprehensive approach focuses on rigorous core instruction, differentiated learning, and individualized student needs through culturally and linguistically relevant instruction using school-wide and classroom research-based positive behavioral supports for achieving important social and learning outcomes.

PBIS
School-wide PBIS begins with the premise that all students should have access to supports to prevent the development and occurrence of problem behavior, including bullying behavior. To avoid stigmatizing any student, school-wide PBIS emphasizes what a student should does and where. Establishing a school-wide expectation for common respect, teaching what that means, and ensuring that all students and faculty and staff members share in the responsibility of making schools respectful settings can make a difference.
