ForensisGroup School Bullying Expert Witnesses understand that bullying can threaten students’ physical and emotional safety at school and can negatively affect their ability to learn. There have been numerous jury verdicts and settlements in bullying cases filed against school districts in federal and state courts throughout the country.
These cases show that liability has attached top schools and school districts beyond what happens during school hours in a school building; in addition, school bullying can occur after hours, during extracurricular activities, and it can happen in locations other than on school grounds. This includes playgrounds, athletic fields, when travelling to or from school, and via the Internet.
Our experts assist law firms by providing reviews of school rules and policies, examining school cultures, and evaluating school reporting and response systems for bullying. They work in and with K-12 schools on issues of safety, access, equity, and diversity. They educate teachers, administrators, and community members about issues related to bullying and student harassment. They conduct educational workshops and individual consulting on school bullying issues.
It is important to note that state anti-bullying laws address bullying in a variety of ways. Some state laws define bullying, and others leave the definition of bullying to local school boards. As a result, you should select a school bullying expert who is familiar with your state’s anti-bullying laws and policies.
