Earlier this year, Ohio lawmakers passed the Jessica Logan Law, which requires districts to set anti-bullying policies that include cyberbullying, and also gives districts more leeway in dealing with cyberbullying incidents outside the school day. Westlake City Schools are refining their own anti-bullying rules. Last week, the Board of Education passed new policies so the school district would be in line with the Jessica Logan Law. The new …
