Bay District Board Members Crack Down on Student Bullies

Bay District School board members have approved a policy in order to protect students from harassment and bullying of any kind.

Board members even decided to take the policy a step further Wednesday, after hearing concerns from some residents.

The new language will say the policy should not abridge a student's first amendment rights.

The policy also includes cyber-stalking, which can be through any type of electronic communication.

    Anything we can do to curb school-age bullying should be done. It negatively affects not only the victim, but the bully, as well. Keep up the good work. Karen Bessey Pease, author of juvenile fiction, Grumble Bluff. (

    Everitt has always had problems with inschool bullying and nothing has EVER done about it. You as a parent have the right to file criminal charges against anyone who harms your child. Do so. With the combining of Springfield Elementary and Everitt is the future, parents must be ready to enforce the law to protect their children if school officials won't. Zero tolerance for violence means just that.

    My 12 year old son has been bullied since school started this year and NOTHING has been done about it. Even after I called the school and spoke to the Asst. Principal, who told me my son would have to go to the Principal. My son has been called names, shoved to the ground, had his books knocked out of his arms, and even had one of his shoes taken off of him and thrown over a fence into a wooded area! And you mean to tell me that no adults saw any of this? Sure they saw it, they just didn't do anything about it! I've told my son that the next time a kid lays a finger on him, to knock home sweet hell out of them! If the faculty won't protect him, he'll have to do it himself. Thanks Mrs. Landen!
