Bullying incident triggers petition

The Snapchat photo was of a girl’s shoes. The strip across the image read, "f*****g snitch got your a** beat for a reason." By Monday evening, the image had inspired 987 people to sign an online petition started Sept. 5 calling for school officials to effectively address bullying within the Coeur d’Alene School District, particularly at Woodland Middle School. According to Nichole Miller, who started the petition on, her daughter was assaulted Aug. 26 at a high school football game. The 13-year-old continued to get threats from the aggressor and that person’s friends/Bethany Blitz, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: What should the school district do?
