Boonville School District puts focus on bullying prevention
The Boonville School District put its focus on bullying prevention.
The school district's Bullying Advisory Committee hosted a town hall forum on bullying prevention.
Dozens of people filled LSE Middle School's auditorium.
KRCG 13's Meghan Lane was on the panel with six other people including a psychiatrist, the director of the Mizzou Bully Prevention Lab and an attorney.
They discussed the definition of bullying as well as how to help victims and how to help the actual bully.
Each person at the event filled out a card for feedback.
Organizers said they were going to look the cards over to see what they should do next in their effort to prevent bullying in their district.
