If in school, the school and superintendent, if necessary, should be contacted.
If out of school, the police should be contacted if it is at a level to be considered criminal.
If not to the level of criminal, the parents need to teach their children how to handle bullies, and I don't mean teach them how to punch one in the face. Bullies are so much easier to diffuse than one thinks. Though it takes a plan and the bullied person needs a safe place to roll play the solutions til they are comfortable with them before using them at school. My daughter went through this, and over weekend we set a plan, I became her weekend bully and I was as mean and hateful as they were, over and over, until she could play her part without whine, whimper, or skittishness. Within a week it was all done, and she was never bullied again AND most importantly she gained a lot of self-confidence handling it herself which has served her well ever since.

The school should get the parents involved to resolve whatever situation arises, however if the parents do not do anything or the behaviour continues, then the school should step in if, as you say, it is affecting the schoolwork of the child.
The parent should always be the first call before the school hands down any kind of punishment.
Going to and from school is a proper limit.
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
As long as they are misbehaving against others from that school, they should get punished by the school even if it is off school grounds. But there must be real evidence against them for that to take place.

If, when defending your support for Donald Trump, and your response is,
"But but but... HILLARY!!!", then you lost the argument before you even began.
Parents should control their kids and stop them from bullying younger kids. Also a policy may be issued that an older by age bully shall be stopped (i.e., sanctioned) from bullying young kids from someone who is even more older than the bully for instance. So the kids cannot be bullied from bigger children while they are not allowed to bully younger children also.
I try to teach bullies that their approach is futile for there is always and always someone older/bigger/stronger than them. They should instead pick someone their own size.
