GCSD9 Bullying Issues & Procedures
This petition made change with 3,897 supporters!
November of 2017, a teenage female was viciously attacked by four young females in a front of a crowd of kids, traffic by-passers while being recorded on video. The attack stemmed from an earlier altercation which happened on school grounds, at Granite City Community Unit School District #9's Coolidge Middle School, located in Granite City, IL.
With no disciplinary actions being held on the children, except for one, and multiple attempts being made, the mother of the victimized child is pushing for new measures in the procedures of said school district's bullying issues.
"My daughter was jumped leaving Coolidge (Middle School) on Monday, now the students involved have not even received consequences other than one. So my straight-A student who doesn't even want to miss school when she's sick, is now terrified, and scared to even attend school. She's been let down by the system now for a zero tolerance, for bullying or fighting, seems to be as if it only applies for certain students. Now I return my daughter to school today, as one of the girls that attacked her on school property proceeded to yell down the hallway, and make more threats with teachers standing there. One thing I'm not getting, is how the HE** this is not being handled accordingly. I have contacted the school board, police, teachers and parents. No one seems to give a sh*t. Well now Fox 2 News YOU PAID FOR IT is being contacted. I need some help or advice on any other ideas anyone has. Please, parent to parent when your child is hurting and there is nothing you can do, it can and will put you in a spot to take matters into your own hands. But that will not fix the issue. The system is failing our kids daily, I for one, have had enough. I'm standing up and I'm hoping I have more friends and family that stand up too, ENOUGH is ENOUGH"
If you believe the school district should hammer down on bullying, fighting, and thier "zero tolerance" procedures & judge every case of disciplining students with the goal of HELPING our children, family & friends who may be students, then PLEASE SIGN & SHARE this petition to help us spread the word around the city & our surrounding areas.
