Wolfe City ISD's purpose of providing bullying information is to promote and enhance the student learning process. Our desire is to offer a path to restrict harmful student behavior.
Wolfe City ISD does not approve of any action that keeps a student from being able to develop to his or her full potential. Allowing rude behavior can hinder a student's growth and performance.
Incidents of unwanted behavior including bullying, cyberbullying, texting, and messaging which cause trouble and threatens a student's performance, will not be tolerated. We desire student success.
"Bullying is unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance. The behavior is REPEATED, or has the potential to be repeated, over time. Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, and excluding someone from a group on purpose." -stopbullying.gov
