AUSD President speaks out against bullying

David Michael Morris via FlickrAlhambra Unified School District President Adele Andrade-Stadler joined Assemblyman Mike Eng and other local leaders and educators at a rally Thursday in Rosemead where they urged Governor Brown to sign new anti-bulling legislation that would provide greater protections against the harassment of students.

For Andrade-Stadler, the issue hits close to home. Her daughter was bullied by a fellow student at Alhambra High School.

“She would come home and we would talk about it,” Andrade-Stadler said. “It was extremely painful for both of us. I think it’s important first and foremost for parents to educate their own children and let them know what proper conduct is.”

The new bill, which is sponsored by the California Parent-Teacher Association, strengthens the definition of bullying, requires on-site prevention training for teachers and makes it easier for bullying victims to transfer to a new school. AB 1156 was passed by the state legislature earlier this month and now requires the governor’s signature.

“Often times, students fall into depression and don’t seek out the help because they don’t think anything will change,” Andrade-Stadler said. “This bill will allow students to leave their actual school site in the event that they feel that nothing else can be done, this gives them more power to know that there is recourse for behavior.”

To combat the epidemic, Alhambra Unified provides its staff with development training in bullying prevention. Additionally, students who violate the district’s bullying policy are subject to disciplinary action up to and including expulsion.

“Bullying is an issue in every school district,” said Andrade-Stadler. “I think asking the governor to sign the bill provides the opportunity for more outreach.”
