Anti-Bullying Program Overview

  • Bullying is conduct that occurs in a public school, on school district premises, in a district-owned or leased school bus or school vehicle, or at any public school or school district sanctioned or sponsored activity or event. Bullying is conduct that is so severe, pervasive, or objectively offensive that it substantially interferes with the student's educational opportunities; places the student in actual and reasonable fear of harm; places the student in actual and reasonable fear of damage to property of the student; or substantially disrupts the orderly operation of the public school. Conduct does include the use of technology or other electronic media.

    West Fargo Public Schools has adopted policy that aligns with the definition of bullying specified in North Dakota Century Code, and that provides a protocol for an individual to report acts of bullying via submission of a written or online complaint form, or by filing an oral report with any staff member. WFPS policy also dictates that the district will implement prevention programs for students and professional development for staff.
