Dear Student,

We need your help to find out what you like about your school and what could be made better. Please answer the questions below.

This is not a test. There are no right or wrong answers. We hope that you will feel free to be totally honest and answer the questions in a way that shows how you really feel.

This is a survey that has to deal with bullying and harassment in school. Please read the definition below.

Bullying - is defined as intimidation or harassment of a student or students brought about by individuals or groups. It involves an imbalance of power, having an intent to harm, repeated over time, a possible threat or aggression, and/or creating terror to maintain dominance. Bullying includes but is not limited to: physical actions (violence, gestures, theft, or damaging property); oral or written taunts (name-calling, put downs, threats, or extortion); or threats of retaliation for reporting such acts.

Bullying may also include cyberbullying or cyberthreats. Cyberbullying is sending or posting harmful or cruel text or images using the internet or other digital communication devices. Cyberthreats are online materials that threaten or raise concerns about violence against others, suicide, or self-harm.
