Fayette schools push anti-bullying message

LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) - Fayette County school buses are carrying placards this year urging students to report cases of bullying when they see an incident happening.

The signs were placed on the buses when classes started last week and are located at the front of the vehicle near the driver. The location was chosen for easy visibility.

The signs have an illustration of a schoolgirl who has been bullied, along with the words: "Bullying ... Not In Our School." The sign also says "Get Help Here" and lists phone numbers for the Fayette County Division of Law Enforcement and Lexington police.

Fayette County Public Schools Law Enforcement Director Chris Townsend told the Lexington Herald-Leader the idea is to get people to report bullying, not necessarily press charges.
