“There is nobody that can police them better than parents,” Harvey said. “It’s not the school’s job and it’s not the state’s job.”
As part of Saturday’s program, Mike Taylor, director of guidance at Pendleton Heights High School will discuss new bullying policies.
The Indiana General Assembly last year passed legislation that changes the definition of bullying, and requires school districts to compile data and create new reporting and training programs for students and staff.
Last fall, a six-person jury awarded a victim of extreme bullying at Pendleton Heights $50,000 in damages stemming from a bullying incident that occurred in 2008.
