Lammersville Unified Bullying and/or Harassment Parent Survey

Lammersville Unified is asking you to answer some questions about bullying/cyberbullying. Your answers will help us better understand if this is a problem in our schools and help us do a better job of helping students if this is a problem. Please only complete one survey per school-aged, Lammersville student in your household.
Use this definition of bullying to complete the survey questions:

Bullying is an act that is done on purpose to threaten, harass, intimidate, or hurt others. The person being bullied has a hard time defending himself or herself. Usually, bullying happens over and over again, and is not just a one-time problem. Bullying can involve a number of different behaviors including:

--Physical bullying (punching, shoving, hitting, destruction of property, etc.)
--Verbal bullying (teasing people, calling them names, or making fun of them)
--Social/emotional bullying (spreading mean rumors or gossip, intentionally keeping people out of a group or ignoring them, or getting others to "gang up" on someone)
--Cyberbullying (teasing, taunting, threatening, or harassing someone through the use of e-mails, cell phones, text or instant messaging, or other electronic methods).

Please answer these questions the best way that you can. There are no right or wrong answers. We're not asking you to put down your name, so no one will know how you answered.

Thank you for your time.
