Schools hope information helpful in stopping, preventing student harassment

When bullying happens at local schools, the confrontations most often are verbal and happen among students in fifth through eighth grade, according to a new state report.

The new report by the Indiana Department of Education is intended to document all bullying reported at all public schools during the 2013-14 school year. Ideally, school districts can use the reports to see and stop bullying trends at their elementary, intermediate, middle and high schools, though not all of the information in the report is accurate.

Greenwood and other public school districts that submitted reports to the state weren’t included, and numbers listed for Northwood Elementary School in Franklin and East Side Elementary in Edinburgh were incorrect, school officials said.
