Hazing is any conduct or method of initiation into any student organization, whether on public or private property, which willfully or recklessly endangers the physical or mental health of any student or other person.
Hazing is prohibited in the Somerville Public Schools. Leaders of student clubs and athletic teams are required to review this policy and prohibition at least annually, and must agree to zero tolerance for hazing. If claims of hazing by student athletic teams or organizations are substantiated the aggressors will face disciplinary consequences.
