"I believe there should be consequences for people, legal consequences for people that are involved. The problem is how do you define it and how you communicate that to people."

Barry Martin - Monroe Public Schools Superintendent

Wednesday, we told you about the anti-bullying bill in the House that would create tougher legal penalties for bullying and cyber bullying.

Thursday, districts like Monroe are hoping it passes as teachers and students there continue with their anti-bullying efforts.

Anyone there can report a bully anonymously through the website.

The superintendent thinks these tougher penalties would be the natural next step.
