The East Hanover Township School District (EHTSD) does not tolerate any form of harassment, intimidation and/or bullying at any time (EHBOE policy #5512/East Hanover Township Board of Education Code of Student Conduct). As a safe and civil educational environment is required for students to learn and achieve high academic standards, the EHTSD recognizes the importance of identifying and investigating any and all reported incidents quickly and consistently.

    Under New Jersey law, “harassment, intimidation, or bullying” means any gesture, any written, verbal or physical act or any electronic communication, whether it is a single incident or a series of incidents, that is:

    a.     Reasonably perceived as being motivated by either any actual or perceived characteristic, such as race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, or a mental, physical or sensory disability, or

    b.      By any other distinguishing characteristic; and that

    c.       Takes place on school property, at any school-sponsored function, on a school bus, or off school grounds, as provided for in N.J.S.A. 18A:37-15.3, that substantially disrupts or interferes with the orderly operation of the school or the rights of other pupils; and that

    d.     A reasonable person should know under the circumstances will have the effect of physically or emotionally harming a pupil or damaging the pupil’s property, or placing a pupil in reasonable fear of physical or emotional harm to his/her person or damage his/her property; or

    e.      Has the effect of insulting or demeaning any pupil or group of pupils; or

    f.     Creates a hostile educational environment for the pupil by interfering with the pupil’s education or by severely or pervasively causing physical or emotional harm to the pupil.
