49-6-1014. Legislative findings Safety and civility.

The general assembly finds and declares that:

     (1)  A safe and civil environment is necessary for students to learn and achieve high academic standards;

     (2)  Harassment, intimidation or bullying, like other disruptive or violent behavior, is conduct that disrupts a student's ability to learn and a school's ability to educate its students in a safe environment; and

     (3)  Students learn by example. School administrators, faculty, staff and volunteers who demonstrate appropriate behavior, treating others with civility and respect and refusing to tolerate harassment, intimidation or bullying, encourage others to do so as well.
