Education Board Approves Bullying Policy
Posted July 1, 2004 3:20 a.m. EDT
RALEIGH, N.C. — The State Board of Education has voted to take a stand on bullies.
Thursday morning, board members unanimously approved a bullying policy for all school districts. The policy would require a representative from each system to be trained in an anti-harassment session.
Local school boards will need a way to enforce the policy. By January, they also need to start documenting and investigating bullying.
