The San Gabriel Unified School District is conducting a parent survey on bullying at school this year. While bullying that has taken place in previous years or at other schools is important, the questions on this survey are about bullying at school this year.

What is Bullying?

Bullying is defined as aggressive behavior that involves an imbalance of real or perceived physical or psychological power among those involved.

Bullying is a form of violence. The acts involve a real or perceived imbalance of power with the more powerful student, person, or group attacking those who are less powerful.

Bullying is subjecting a person to abusive actions. Typically, bullying behavior is unprovoked, intentional and repeated over time and includes the use of hurtful words, and/or acts.
