Who do students talk to if they are being bullied at school?

Students can talk to any teacher, administrator, or school counselor to get help if they are experiencing bullying at school.  Bullying is defined as “unwanted, aggressive behavior among school aged children that involves a real or perceived power imbalance.  The behavior is repeated, or has the potential to be repeated, over time.”  Bullying is not tolerated at Copper Mountain and is taken very seriously.  Visit to learn ways to talk to your student about bullying and learn how to prevent bullying.
