Reactions to an anti-bullying bill are mostly in favor across the state.
The bill (HB 1147) requires school districts to develop a policy prohibiting bullying of one student by another. The bill is one of about three like it being tossed around in the North Dakota House and Senate.
In HB 1147, “bullying” is defined as physical acts, verbal utterances and written and electronic communication used to cause fear or detriment to a student’s physical and mental health or academic performance.
