Bullying Prevention and Intervention

Definition of Bullying

According to HB 11-1254, "Bullying" means any written or verbal expression, or physical or electronic act or gesture, or pattern thereof, that is intended to coerce, intimidate, or cause any physical, mental, or emotional harm to any student. "Bullying" is prohibited against any student for any reason, including but not limited to any such behavior that is directed toward a student on the basis of his or her academic performance; or against whom federal and state laws prohibit discrimination upon any of the bases described in section 22-32-109 (1)(11)(l).

Bullying Prevention Legislation

This website was created in accordance with the Concerning Measures to Reduce the Frequency of Bullying in Schools ACT (HB 11-1254). Inside these pages you will find resources and tools for schools and communities to utilize in order to reduce the frequency and intensity of bullying behaviors. This website was created with the help of many partners. Thanks to the Colorado Department of Education’s Support and Intervention Unit and Teaching and Learning Unit, the Colorado School Safety Resource Center, Colorado Education Initiative, and schools and districts across Colorado for their help in this endeavor.

We hope that this website will provide a useful tool to staff, students, and families across Colorado.
