Mentor School Board to Hear Anti-Bullying Report at Meeting Tonight
The Board of Education will also recognize the Project Mosaic Art and Essay Award winners during its monthly meeting
William Porter, the director of Mentor School's kindergarten through eight grade education, will present the Board of Education with the district's semi-annual bullying report during its meeting 7 p.m. Tuesday at the administration building.
The report offers statistics on the number and type of bullying incidents that are reported in the schools. It also highlights any new anti-bullying initiatives that the district is focusing on.
Mentor Schools has had two lawsuits filed against it in the last five years by families of students who claim their children committed suicide because they were bullied and the district did not do enough to prevent it.
One lawsuit, filed by the parents of Eric Mohat, was dismissed from federal court. The second, filed by Sladjana Vidovic's parents, is ongoing.
Also at the Board of Education meeting:
- The Project Mosaic Art and Essay Award winners will be recognized
- Former Mentor High Principal Joseph Spiccia will offer an update on the district's efforts regarding Race to the Top.
- Jen Skulski, the district's supervisor of purchasing and grounds, will give a report on transportation efficiency.
