"Safe Schools" Grant Coming To Amarillo

The prevention, intervention, and elimination of bullying... Texas receives over $100,000 dollars for a multi-year program to combat the problem in Texas schools.

Amarillo is one of several cities in the state that will be a part of the program. Community forums will be set up later this year to raise public awareness of the effects of bullying and harassment.

Funding for this program is provided by the Tides Foundation's State Equality Fund.
