Gateway Community Charters believes that all students have a right to a safe, supportive and healthy school environment free from bullying and harassment. GCC is committed to promoting mutual respect, tolerance, and acceptance within our schools by incorpirating the Capturing Kids Hearts (CKH) program, that is designed to change school wide culture to promote appropriate behavior, self-refection, responsibility and academic growth. CKH is a relationship-building approach to discipline that creates self-managing groups. In addition, anti-bullying and conflict resolution resources are provided and easily accessible to all students, staff and parents/guardians.     

What is bullying?

Bullying is unwanted, harassment, intimidation, a hazing or initiation activity, ridicule, extortion, or any other verbal, written, electronic communication, or physical conduct, repeated over time, that causes or threatens to cause bodily harm or emotional suffering, creates a hostile learning environment, or disrupts the normal operation of a school, classroom, or school related activity.
The behavior is repeated over time. Bullying behavior includes: 
  • An Imbalance of Power: Kids who bully use their power—such as physical strength, access to embarrassing information, or popularity—to control or harm others. Power imbalances can change over time and in different situations, even if they involve the same people.
  • Repetition: Bullying behaviors are pervasive, that is , the bullying acts happen more than once over time.
  • Bullying includes actions such as making threats, spreading rumors, attacking someone physically or verbally, ridiculing and excluding someone from a group on purpose.
