New software program helps schools track bullying

(Continued)

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. —

Meanwhile, parents and students can use a Web portal to report bullying allegations. Those too must be investigated, Townsend said.

Freiwald said New Jersey's state education officials are able to review the information – with individual names redacted – to spot areas where bullying instances are high.

"They want to see the trends," she added.

Other states are considering bills patterned after New Jersey's law, Pennsylvania among them. A bipartisan group of 95 state representatives is working to push the Pa. Safe Schools (Pass) Act through the House.

Hurst writes for The Tribune-Democrat in Johnstown, Pa.
