It was found that 49% of children in grades 4–12 reported being bullied at school at least once.

Whether the form of bullying is physical, verbal, or over social media, your child deserves to be protected and there are laws in place to ensure the bullying stops.

The state of Ohio has anti-bullying regulations to protect every child, placing the responsibility on the schools. "Schools that receive federal funding are required by federal law to address discrimination on a number of different personal characteristics."

The Ohio Department of Education has formed the Ohio Anti-Harassment, Intimidation and Bullying Initiative to provide resources and help for parents seeking to end bullying of their child. 

We have recent experience taking a school district to court when it was found one of their students faced physical and verbal assaults repeatedly.

If your child is a victim of any form of bullying, contact us to fight for them and to make sure they can go to school feeling safe and protected.
