Crane School District implements new and improved anti-bullying rules

Posted: Updated:

Yuma, AZ-New and improved anti-bullying policies are being implemented at several elementary schools.

If you see it, say it, stop it.

It's the anti-bullying motto seen at every elementary school but now a new and improved anti-bullying policy is taking over.

"That's our goal to get it to a point where bullying is just as bad as smoking cigarettes on the playground," Bobbie Henry, principal at Valley Horizon Elementary school said.

Crane Elementary School district officials met to discuss bullying on campus.

"There's a lot of training that has to be done, not just with kids but with our staff because the policy isn't very difficult and very comprehensive compared to what our old policy said," Henry said.

She said everybody who works in education is expected to go through the program.

Henry said staff members from teachers to cafeteria workers will be made aware about bullying and how to detect it.

She said students will also go through the training and know the difference between bullying, a disagreement and conflict.

"As part of the policy it talks about providing those who been bullied with resources and various strategies and things they can do to move forward or to get help," she said.

Crane district bullying policies are listed online at www.craneschools.org

A complaint form is also available online for parents to fill out if they suspect bullying.
