A single call to a single school is terrorism.

Calling many is basically an attack on national infrastructure. Possibly state sponsored.

Seriously though, this seems like a foreign actor.

To be terrorism it must have a political goal.

That’s not true. It extends to religious, social, racial, or environmental goals too.

That's the same thing - those are essentially more specific subsets of political goals.

My point is mainly it has to have some goal, just causing trouble is not terrorism.

No, it's a tool for a political goal, it's not a political goal in and of itself.
