How is bullying handled at school?

In school, bullying can be physical, verbal, or written whether electronic or paper. It is any aggressive and unwanted behavior that is intended to harm, intimidate or humiliate the victim who has the perception that the aggressor is in the position of power over repeated times and is causing severe emotional trauma. Bullying is not ordinary teasing, horseplay, argument, or peer conflict. 

Any person who threatens another bodily harm or death in writing whether electronically, or not, on school grounds or on a school bus regardless of whether or not the proposed victim receives the threat is guilty of a felony. 

Any person who verbally threatens bodily harm or to kill to a school employee at school, on a school bus, or at a school sponsored event could be found guilty of a Class 1 Misdemeanor.
