New bullying policy for Kenosha Unified will get more review
A policy on bullying, harassment and hate under development in the Kenosha Unified School District was sent back to committee by the full board earlier this week.
After some discussion on some points the policy was sent back to the Policy Committee.
One of the chief points of contention was raised by board member Pam Stevens. She wanted a change in language from the administration “may take disciplinary action” to will take disciplinary action when it has been determined that a student has participated in bullying.
Superintendent Michele Hancock said every such case is very unique and the more qualified language may be a better fit.
The vote to refer the policy back to committee passed unanimously.
