The Carmel Clay School Board voted Monday to adopt a new anti-bullying policy that addresses cyber-bullying.
The board adopted a new policy in order to comply with the state’s revised bullying law.
All schools are now required to have comprehensive bullying policies. They’re also allowed to go after cyber-bullying, no matter where it happens.
The state Department of Education is supposed to offer schools a model for the new anti-bullying policy as well as educational materials for students and staff.
So far, schools are still waiting for that information.
