New TN law requires schools to investigate and report bullying

Posted: Updated:

(WMC-TV) - A new Tennessee law is requiring schools to investigate and report bullying in schools.

In 2012, schools in the Jackson-Madison County district reported 49 bullying incidents to the state. So far this school year, there have not been any incidents to report.

However, if a student is harmed by a bully, the school district makes it clear that the bully could either be suspended or sent to an alternative learning center.
