Making fun of other students is not nice
There is a student who always comes to class late and stays past the schools time. I always see other students making fun of this students clothes that they wear. This student is always trying to fit in with the other students by making pranks in class and interrupting the teacher when they speak. I have tried to talk to this student but nothing seems to be working. Does anyone have any solutions for me? I can tell that it hurts this students feelings when they get made fun of. I feel like I have run out of options.

I believe that you would need to have a personal conversation with the student about their home situation. Why does the student arrive late? Why does the student stay past school time? Can the student be reaching out for help in the wrong way? Try to get to know the student on a personal level and try to connect with them.

I think this is a great solution to really understand what the student is going through. This can help the student and begin the next step to fix the problem.

How well do you know this student? Do you know of hobbies or activities they like? Perhaps you can help the student find an avenue in which (s)he express his or herself. Maybe there is a club or team (s)he can join. If (s)he likes to create art, is there a club for it? Maybe (s)he lacks the confidence to connect with people and get to know them - having common ground is an easy ice breaker. If (s)he finds a good group of people who (s)he can call friends, maybe (s)he will no longer feel the need to attract attention to his or herself.

I would fix this problem by having a talk with the class as a whole and telling them bullying will not be tolerated in this class by any means and if they plan on doing so I will have the taken out and sent to the office with a referral. I think this will calm it down a bit, then I would take the student aside who is getting bullied and have a one on one with them and ask them what is wrong and get to the real problem. If there is anything I can do to help and maybe have him meet with the guidance councilor one a week so they can talk about everything.

The teacher needs to promote an environment of respect and tolerance in the classroom. She could do this by having students do a self-evaluation activity where they talk about their strengths and weaknesses. It is important that students understand that it is wrong to make fun of others, as humans we all have our flaws.

I would address this by having a discussion in class about what is not tolerated when it comes to bullying. Then I would have a conference with the student to find the root problem of being late or staying late after school. Depending on how much the student shares, it may be necessary to direct him to a counselor or administrator to have a discussion with their parents.
