Events Report Our Bullying conference was one of our most dynamic and exciting events in the most recent months. ILASCD invited legal experts and practicing lawyers Merry Rhoades and Mary Kay Klimesh to explain the legal implications of both bullying and the ever changing and hyper-relevant issues dealing with cyberbullying. The pair fielded questions on a wide range of topics regarding bullying and cyberbullying and interpreted the full particulars of the law in the state of Illinois. Laura Ferrell, an Assistant Principal as at Oak Lawn-Hometown Middle School delivered a dynamic presentation and was kind enough to bring in some of her actual students to discuss the technology they use on a daily basis. This was helpful as it detailed what they use it for and how it impacts their daily lives. The students discussed how their parents and schools deal with and protect against cyberbullying. It was a highlight of the afternoon as the audience was able to witness to hear things feedback from actual students and was the buzz of the conference as folks the crowd filed out the door at the end of the session. Both teams and individuals left that day with either an outline or an entirely new plan of action tackling the issue of bullying in their schools.
