Anti-bullying web site launched

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The Iowa public school system has a new database that will be used for the tracking of incidents of bullying.

The web site was launched on Friday by the Department of Education.

Until now, the state has relied on one annual set of reports, which was prompted in 2007 by a state anti-bullying and anti-harassment law.

Schools will report cases of bullying, based on one of more than 17 traits that are detailed in the state law.
