I would like to let all Anthony Wayne parents know that I plan on attending the next school board meeting June 30 at 8 a.m. I have requested to speak but have not yet been giving an answer. I would only like to know if what happened to Kaylee is not considered bullying according to their bullying policy then what is. I would like to know if there has ever been bullying case in the district and if so what were the circumstances. I feel these are reasonable questions for parents to ask. If you as parent would like to know the answers to these question or have concerns yourself, I encourage you to go. Just posting stuff on facebook will not answer or solve the problem. We need to go and ask the hard questions to the people that make these decisions.

UPDATE: The following was posted on Facebook by Marla Halko at 1:15 on 6/19/14-

I have heard from the school board and was approved to speak at the meeting on June 30 at 8 a.m.

    If they claim they have no control over social media, then they need to rewrite the bullying policy. If the athletic code can punish kids if they happen to drink or be at parties where alcohol is, then they can control social media. Trust me, if a student threatened a teacher on FB, bet they would get involved. The 16 yr. old Kayla Meeker who took her own life was said to have been bullied. If you read her site, her dad posted what was said. Good luck, but I think AW keeps eyes closed and doesn’t treat everyone the same.

    I hope more parents from your district are able to reach out to you and even stand by you at the mtg. In the meantime, there is an article I hope you are able to take with you. http://www.educationworld.com/a_admin/bullying-school-legal-liability.shtml

    To suggest that certain individuals who are in a place of employment where their livelihood is keeping children in a safe and respectful environment all the while why they learn is something that i think we need to be careful of. The leaders in this district are individuals just like the rest of us and they are in the business of molding young children to be integral parts of our future society. I know that there are not a tremendous amount of educators in the world who go to work just to clock in and clock out without them thinking about the vital role they play in their students lives. I think this extends to administration as well, eventhough they are not in a classroom daily and working with the children, I feel it is a huge disservice to throw one administration under the bus. The epidemic facing AW is an issue surrounding the whole nation, not just Anthony Wayne. There are reports of a PHS student who has regrettably taken her own life this week, this needs to be about action I agree whole heartedly, but not in an attempt to make it a US (parents) versus THEM (Administration/District). We need to work together as a group of people who all care about ALL students in a school building. Whether it be an overweight child, disfigured child, socially awkward child, severe behavioral child, promiscuous child, mentally handicapped child….the list goes on and on….we need to be able to be an agent of change and know that “Hate only breeds hate, the only thing that brings about change is love.”

    Why do you continue to talk about bullying at AW but won’t notice that fact that Perrysburg just had a suicide over bullying also? Her story deserves to be heard too.

    They won’t give you the info you are asking for because it would involve specifics, try to phrase it so it is broader and they can’t use the excuse of privacy. Otherwise, they will shut you down. Use your daughter as an example of what bullying is and make them tell you why what she went through isn’t bullying. Our school district does address social media as a form of bullying, although it is difficult to monitor in most cases. Sending positive vibes your way ❤
