WAYNE – The state’s new anti-bullying law regulates students’ behavior on and off school property and school officials say it demands more time than they have to offer, leaving little or no time for anything else.
The law went into effect Sept. 1 and since then, school officials in Wayne have been working diligently, training over 2,000 employees from teachers to bus drivers, each requiring two hours of instruction.
"It’s difficult to arrange for training after school hours especially when many of our employees have second jobs they have to get to. So we’ve been trying to work the training into their daily schedules," said Interim Superintendent Michael Roth.
The new statute is recognized to be the toughest in the country.
