Bullies Beware

June 12th, 2008 by flanews

School districts throughout the state have until the end of the year to come up with a plan to deal with school bullies. After several failed attempts a piece of legislation aimed at stopping bullying in public schools passed both chambers. Governor Charlie Crist signed the bill into law earlier this week. Now school districts will have to draft an anti-bullying policy outlining plans on how to deal with school bullies and their victims. Leon County School District Policy directory Barbara Wills says many schools have a plan in place the hard part will be spotting the bullies, especially the ones that use the internet to pick on students.

The variety of ways that the students bully each other has gotten worse unfortunately, so we have to work hard to keep all of our students safe and secure and find out whats going on and how to solve those problems, said Wills

Every school can adopt a different anti-bullying policy as long as it follows the States Department of Educations guidelines.
