"...Representative John Scibak (D-South Hadley) says 99% of schools are fully compliant with the anti-bullying act passed last year. This groundbreaking legislation requires all school districts in the Commonwealth to have a bullying prevention and intervention plan – and report bullies to police if they believe criminal charges can be pursued. “Unless every school does exactly what they’re supposed to and fully complies, we’re running the risk of children being vulnerable again and at risk,” said Scibak. Bullying also doesn’t stop after high school. In the future, Representative Scibak plans to tackle bullying in the workplace."
