Bullying in Our Schools - Student Survey

Before answering these questions, please be sure that you read and understand the definition of bullying.  Please take this questionnaire seriously.

Definition:
Bullying is when one student, or a group of students, keeps hurting another child with words or actions.  Bully may be hitting, shoving, kicking, name calling, playing pranks, leaving a student out, spreading rumors, or doing other mean things to a student.  

Bullying often, though not always, happens between students who are not friends. Sometimes bullying can happen just one time. Bullying happens when one person who has more physical or emotional power targets another person who has trouble defending himself or herself. Usually the victim becomes very upset.
