Settlement Reached for Boy who Killed Himself After Being Bullied
The family of an 8-year-old boy who took his life after being bullied at school has reached a settlement with the school district. The boy had been repeatedly bullied by classmates at his Ohio elementary school, leading to his suicide in 2017. The $3 million settlement also includes regular monitoring of the school’s anti-bullying plan and implementation of a bullying reporting program for the next two years. The school plans to make improvements to the plan, such as training and supervising staff on anti-bullying reforms and identifying repeat offenders, victims, and locations.
