Cheyenne Schools Launch Anti-Bullying Training
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — Wyoming's largest school district has begun training its teachers and staff in a new anti-bullying program.
Laramie County School District 1 Superintendent Mark Stock says the program is targeted at the elementary schools.
Stock says students and parents in the Cheyenne school district will see some changes as the system is started.
There will be new rules, weekly class discussions about how to prevent bullying and meetings with parents.
Stock tells the Wyoming Tribune Eagle that each school is required to engage parents to get more parent involvement.
Students will be more involved too by getting them to help bully victims and report when bullying occurs.
The program is part of the response to bullying issues in LCSD1 schools and has been in the works for almost two years.
