Cortland Police Department News

Bullying is defined as an intentional behavior that hurts, harms, or humiliates a student, either physically or emotionally, and can happen while in school, in the community, or online. Those bullying often have more social or physical "power", while those targeted have difficulty stopping the behavior. The behavior is typically repeated, though it can be a one-time incident. Students often describe bullying as when "someone makes you feel less about who you are as a person". Bullying can have a lasting and sometimes tragic effect on a student. There is no place for bullying. Educate your student and report any incidents of bullying as soon as possible.
