Bullying and harassment of public school students is a continuing, and dangerous, problem for students and their parents. Our firm is committed to the protection of vulnerable students and ensuring legal accountability by the school administration. There is something you can do to address bullying.
Bullying and Harassment on School Grounds. The state and federal government require school districts to maintain strict anti-bullying policies within the school grounds. If your child is suffering the effects of peer on peer bullying, these laws can provide the means to effectively enforce your child’s right to a safe learning environment.
Cyber-bullying and Harassment. The online world is the modern location for bullying. No longer limited to just high school aged students, it can occur with much younger children.
