The Coeur d’Alene school board said Monday it will crack down on bullying in schools and work to change the culture that nurtures the conduct. The board directed administrators to form a task force to size up the scope of the problem and recommend solutions. School trustees also plan to streamline several district policies that address student conduct, harassment, bullying, threats, student suspensions and use of electronic devices such as cellphones and tablets. Cyberbullying, which includes intimidation on Facebook pages and Twitter feeds, is a substantial problem that needs to be part of the district’s review, said Hannah Masters, a Coeur d’Alene mother of two teen sons/Scott Maben, SR.
