The days are past when bullying is tolerated with an attitude, “ignore it and it will go away.” Schools take bullying seriously, in fact are required by the state to develop policies to prevent students from being taken advantage of or harassed by their peers. Besides being mandated, “it’s the right thing to do,” said Suzan Patton, assistant superintendent for USD 382, which will host a training session for all staff on Monday.

Parents are invited to sit in on a session with teachers, paraprofessionals and administrators from 9 a.m. to noon or for classified staff from 1 to 3 p.m. Aug. 17, both at the Liberty Middle School Auditorium.

Joe Coles, a former teacher and counselor in Dodge City and Cimarron and specialist with the Southwest Kansas Educational Consortium, currently an independent consultant, presents his bullying curriculum to educators all across the country. Full story.
