Kane prosecutors offer anti-bullying program to schools
The Kane County State's Attorney's Office is hoping to expand its anti-bullying program to more schools this school year.  Until now, the prosecutor's office has offered the program to schools that requested it. With a new school year starting, prosecutors are hoping to involve more schools.  The free program is designed as a three-part presentation: one for small groups with students, a training seminar for staff, and a presentation for parents.  The program begins with the prosecutors asking students to anonymously write about how they've been bullied and how they wish they were treated. The comments are used in the presentation to reinforce that bullying isn't a problem that only happens somewhere else.  "These are actual examples from their schools," said State's Attorney Joe McMahon.
