School District 6 Aims To Combat Bullying

School District 6 is combating bullying by changing school culture and student attitudes.

Learning Specialist Pam Miller tells CHSJ News by ingraining anti-bullying lessons into everyday school-life, it makes students more comfortable to report about bullying and something will be done.

She say teachers and staff members know how to respond to that reporting so it's streamlined and they know exactly what to do.

She says recent studies shows that incidents of bullying have gone down in District 6 over the past few years.

Bullying has been brought back to the forefront recently after a student at Hampton Middle School was held down and had her hair cut.
