    1. schools are now required toaddress HIB occurring off school grounds, when there is a nexus between the HIB and the school (i.e., the HIB substantially disrupts or interferes with the orderly operation of the school or the rights of other students)

      I would imagine that bullying most often causes individuals to have a hard time at school, no matter the severity, so it surprises me that a school is ONLY required to address HIB if the student openly shows disruption in the classroom. I feel that if a student is being bullied by another student, on or off of school grounds, the school counselor or some member should address it, even if the bullied student has not shown signs of being bullied.
