Fayette schools schedule forum about bullying

The Fayette County School System will hold a community forum on bullying on Oct. 30 at Sams Auditorium in Fayetteville.

Bullying is the topic of the first community forum for this school year that is being sponsored by the Fayette County Public School System, the Fayette County District Attorney, Fayette County Sheriff’s Department, Fayetteville Police Department, Peachtree City Police Department, and the NAACP, according to school system spokesperson Melinda Berry-Dreisbach.

The forum is scheduled for 7-8:30 p.m. on Oct. 30 at Sams Auditorium, located at 205 LaFayette Avenue (the former Fayette County High School campus), behind Arby’s in Fayetteville.

Information will be presented on the Georgia Bullying Law, what is and is not bullying, the characteristics of the bully, victim and bystander, and ways parents can help their children not become a victim. An overview of “Ignorance is No Defense” by J. Tom Morgan is also included in the program.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask questions to a panel made up of school system and school-level administrators, school counselors and students.

The program is free and open to the community.
