KAUKAUNA, WI (WTAQ) - The school superintendent in Kaukauna said a bullying incident has been resolved, after the victim and his father placed an emotional story about it on Facebook.
Superintendent Mark Duerwaechter told his School Board Monday night that the incident was indeed bullying – and the instigators were held accountable.
The Facebook post featured a photo of the boy and his father – who wrote that his son was body slammed three times by the same bully that’s made his son’s school year a “nightmare.” He wrote that he went to the police and school officials with no satisfaction.
On Facebook, the father wrote, “Tell school districts that protecting bullies by turning a blind eye is wrong!”
Duerwaechter said the incident will be a real lesson for Kaukauna school officials. He promises that the district will improve communication between parents and students, make its anti-bullying efforts stronger, and create a student assistance program to help students deal with a variety of barriers to learning – including bullies.
