The Illinois School Code
The Illinois General Assembly finds that “a safe and civil school environment is necessary for students to learn and achieve and that bullying causes physical, psychological, and emotional harm to students and interferes with students’ ability to learn and participate in school activities….Because of the negative outcomes associated with bullying in schools, the General Assembly finds that school districts and non-public, non-sectarian elementary and secondary schools should educate students, parents, and school district personnel about what behaviors constitute prohibited bullying.” 105 ILCS 5/27-23.7
“Every school district shall create and maintain a policy on bullying and must communicate its policy to students and their parents on an annual basis.”
