Frugal, you're saying punishing or reprimanding a bully is wrong the 1st few times they do it? Seriously? They should be allowed to get away with bullying another kid as long as they just don't do it more than a few times? That's ridiculous.

Kelly, it says "Student/principal conference and/or other disciplinary action" which leaves it up to the principal to have some leeway for the punishment, depending on the severity of the offese. Mandatory punishments for the first few offenses are wrong.

Wow. So, a bully who is causing mental and/or physical anguish to another child gets 2 warnings behind even facing suspension? Then a minimum of 3 days on warnings 3-5!!!! Seriously? With the problem so prevalent today, and kids actually taking their own lives, the penalties for dealing with bullies seems to be rather lax. No wonder I hear parents of kids being bullied always saying the issue never seems to go away and their child continues to bullied. I say, 1 warning and then they face a long-term suspension.
