Rockland family pushes for law to keep kids safe at school
A Garnerville family is pushing for a new law to keep kids safe from bullies while they are at school.
Tashana Chambers says she was jumped by a group of girls right after a graduation ceremony at North Rockland High School in June. Chambers says the girls were jealous of her and threatened her during the school year. Now, her family is suing the school district and proposing a law, Tashana's Law, for students who are bullied.
Chambers never told her parents she was being bullied at school. Tashana's Law would require schools to notify parents of students involved in bullying and to notify police as well. North Rockland suspended two students allegedly involved in the fight and say they followed all the proper procedures. Tashana's family will also seek monetary damages from the school.
