Bullies seem to be as much a part of school as homework or pop quizzes. Although we can't put an end to the latter, we can put an end to bullying. It's not enough just to tell someone, though, it must be reported so there's documentation.

Basically, until you fill out the report form on the Yakima Public Schools website, it never happened. Once reported online, the principal of that school is legally obligated to investigate the matter.

This is for the Yakima School District, specifically, but I'm sure our neighboring schools have similar procedures if someone you know is bullied at school.
