On December 9, 2010 the SPS submitted its plan for addressing all components on the Massachusetts Anti-Bullying legislation. The Plan, which was created over a period of nine months, was informed by comments from parents/guardians and community members, teachers, administrators, community partners and other experts from the PK-12 Student Support Unit of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
