‘No Bully Zone’ for Sioux City, S.D., schools

The Sioux City Community School District is fighting back against bullying and harassment. They’re being featured in a documentary for it.

Those efforts to prevent bullying and harassment in Sioux City schools have not only gained the attention of the nation, but film makers as well.

The district has been teaming up with the Waitt Institute for violence prevention, for the past several years in a proactive approach to raise awareness on bullying and harassment with their “Anti Bullying Project.”

The first of a kind program focuses not only on kids, but adults as well. Organizers say it’s crucial to keep communication lines open.

“It’s very important that we have nice schools for the students to go to school in. It’s important to have the very best curriculum and technology available for them. But the very most important thing that exists is the relationship between the staff members and students to make a difference in that student’s achievement.” Full story.
