ROCKINGHAM COUNTY, Va -- Rockingham County is just one of two school districts in the state that is working hard to start an anti-bullying program.
A committee was made in March to tackle this issue and on Monday night, they asked the school board to move forward with new programs that will prevent bullying.
Scott Bojanich presented the ideas and he said they would like to have handbooks that lay out what bullying really is so everyone can be on the same page.
"I think it would be the vision of the anti-bullying committee to actually come up with a binder, if you will, to say 'Here's what we do and here's why we do it.' That would be useful to our students, to our staff, to our parents and to everybody else," said Scott Bojanich, the director of secondary instruction.
The committee meets every month to find news ways of keeping kids safe from bullies.
