Bullying Policy

The Board of Education of the Albuquerque Public Schools is committed to providing a safe, respectful and fear-free environment for all members of the school community including staff, students, parents, community partners, and visitors. The Board believes that preventing bullying is important to having a safe, respectful, and fear-free climate which should help students learn, achieve high academic standards, and establish a positive educational environment. All participants in the APS District’s educational community should be aware of the Board’s expectation of a safe, respectful and fear-free school and work environment, and should model this in their own behaviors. The Board directs the Superintendent to establish procedures to implement this policy.

Harassment, or bullying, can happen at all ages and grade levels. If a child feels that he or she is being harassed or bullied, it is hard for them to pay attention in class.   Examples of harassment/bullying:

  • Unwanted touching
  • name calling/teasing
  • obscene gestures
  • showing or drawing “dirty” pictures, jokes or cartoons
  • staring at or making comments about someone’s body
  • grabbing or pulling at someone’s clothing
  • spreading rumors
  • assault
  • making negative statements about a student’s racial, ethnic or religious heritage

  Respect others and DON’T:

  • Annoy someone after he or she asks you to stop!
  • Treat someone differently just because that person is different from you!
  • Pull at someone’s clothing!
  • Touch someone when that person does not want to be touched!

 Sexual harassment is unwelcome behavior that makes another person feel uncomfortable. Montezuma Elementary wants children to have a positive and safe school where they will not be bullied, harassed, or intimidated. Federal law, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, and APS District Policy prohibit sexual harassment.
