TUSD back-to-school event targets bullying

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Addressing the issues before they can be a problem. That’s what students, parents, teachers and school administrators did Saturday at Palo Verde High School.  They were all a part of Impact Tucson which focused on Bullying, Behavior and Bravery. The first-time conference for Tucson Unified School District had classroom sessions, a panel discussion and a resource fair.
 
The purpose of Impact Tucson was to tell students and parents about ways to handle bullying, and  work with students about what behavior is appropriate and what is not.
 
Emma Allen is going into her sophomore year at Tucson High. She was one of the hundreds of students at Impact Tucson.

“I'm actually currently being bullied over social media for the past few days it's not fun. I broke down and cried.” says Allen.  Her mom made her come to the conference, but says she is glad she attended because she learned about dealing with bullies.
 
TUSD expected about 200 people for the first Impact Tucson conference. There were about 500 people at the conference.
