School Board Reviews Proposed Policy On Bullying

Hartford Courant (Glastonbury, CT) October 24, 2011

"The board of education on Monday began discussing its proposed bullying prevention and intervention policy, intended to give teachers and administrators more power outside school grounds and in cyberspace.
By Jan. 1, the board must approve the Safe School Climate Plan, part of the state legislature's anti-bullying law that gives school officials more power to intervene when a student is harassed or threatened by electronic means, even if the bullying occurs off school grounds.
Under the plan, Assistant Superintendent Rosemary Tralli would become the plan's coordinator with principals at each school known as specialists.

A committee would be set up at each school to develop and foster a safe school climate and address issues related to bullying." Read More
