Administrators Meet with Parents at East Middle School to Discuss Bullying

By Emily Girsch.
This evening parents and administrators gathered at East Middle School to discuss bullying.

Bullying has been reported as an ongoing problem for East Middle.

The school's principal, Lori Czeitner, resigned earlier this month.

On Thursday it was announced that retired administrator Joyce Westgate would take over as interim principal.

Westgate hopes to work with parents to improve the situation.

"I'm here to become a partner with the school and I think that all parents should come out and actually become partners with the school to try to fix these problems that are going on," said parent Raychelle Kendrick.

The school is in the process of implementing new procedures on how to handle bullying.

Fox 40 will have more on bullying and violence in area schools on Tuesday.
