TRAVERSE CITY-
Traverse City Area Public Schools added “sexual orientation” to its anti-bullying policy on April 25, reported upnorthlive.com.
The TCAPS also added hazing and stalking as prohibited conduct and a rule that parents must be notified within 24 hours of a reported bullying incident.
Interlochen Public Radio reported on April 25 that the vote was causing controversy in the community, because “some religious groups say it is unnecessary to name particular groups of students in a bullying policy.”
