LAS VEGAS (KSNV & MyNews3) -- Bullying in school is a growing problem that's getting more attention, from kids to parents to school administrators.
It has gone so far that Clark County Superintendent Pat Skorkowski created an internal task force to look at the issue. Since March, the task force has met five times.
Today, that task force presented its recommendations to Skorkowski.
The board's recommended areas of improvement include outlining administrative responsibility and accountability, enhancing curriculum and interventions, updating policies and regulations, and strengthening notification and reporting requirements.
After the presentation Skorkowski thanked the task force, but noted the district cannot battle this problem alone.
"It's not just a parent problem and a nationwide problem," Skorkowski said.
Several parents spoke publicly. "It shouldn't take a tragedy to make positive change," said parent Jason Lamberth, who lost his 13-year-old daughter Hailey to suicide as a result of severe bullying in December.
He's been holding the district's feet to the fire ever since.
