New Bullying Policy

I am trying to get as many signatures as I can to get the Bristol Borough School District to change their bullying policy. Both of my sons have suffered through horrendous bullying and the school has done nothing about it. I have filed police reports, taken photos of bruises on my son, been to the principal, disciplinarian, etc and still nothing. My younger son is afraid to go to school!  He has been kicked, punched, held down, called names, laughed at, bloody noses, things taken from him and hand sanitizer rubbed in his eyes. 

My older son was attacked by 12 kids and the school thinks it is kids being kids.  He has been called names, put down because he IS itellgient and tape placed over is mouth.

 My sons are so afraid to go to some of the teachers or other staff members because their only answer is, "Are you sure they are not just joking around??"  You have got to be kidding me!! When I contact the school I get a song and a dance. They tell me they can't go around accusing other students of bullying and it can't come from me it has to come from my kids. News Flash....my kids are afraid to tell you because you won't do anything about it.  It's sad that most of the teachers are willing to do whatever they can for the students but their hands are basically tied when policy says otherwise. Do you realize what bullying does to a person? Well, my children will NOT be statistics. The schools are afraid to put out money for programs for these disturbed children who bully. They are afraid to put out money for expelling students. Well, it has to change and it starts with me. Please sign this petition so that it can be brought to the local authorities and school board. Help me make a safer place for our children while getting the education they deserve!

      I am signing this petition because my daughter was also being bullied in the same school. It only happened twice, but in the instance it happens again, I want procedures in place to better handle the situation! No child should have to fear going to school because of other kids bullying them!

      Because bullying doesn't just leave physical scars, it's the emotional ones that never go away and kids should have to pay for their actions.

      I am signing this because when my son attends the BBSD in a few years, I would hate to have to take money from their budget via a law suit if my son suffers physical or emotional abuse with no real, concrete consequences for the perpetrator(s).

      I am signing this petition because my daughter use to be a student at Snyder Girotti and she was once a victim. There were girls at a school dance threatening to hurt my child and the teachers/chaperones did nothing. The person who helped my daughter was one od the janitors. We went to the principal and nothing happened. Myself and my husbanf had to phsically go to the parenfs of these kids, qhere things ended up getting physical between myself and the mother. I now see why that child is a bully, and yes bad parenting is it.

      Bully's are cowards and need an ass beating, usually the bullies parents were most likely bullies at one point, or they're just afraid to discipline their kids
