KENNETT SQUARE — It may have been some time since the Unionville-Chadds Ford school board has made mention of bullying, but that doesn’t mean they haven’t continued to work on it.

“A goal that we have discussed before is the importance of bringing parents into the discussion,” said board member Kathleen Do. “Along with students and school personnel, they are the third leg of the stool that will enable us to address bullying.”

Administrators of the district and individual schools have been working together to send communications out to parents and a resource page has been created on the district’s website which explains the focus on bullying prevention and links to the district’s policy on the subject.

There are also forms parents can download to fill out to report any incidents of bullying.

“A lot of this is due to the initiatives of our principals who have made anti-bullying efforts a top priority in our schools,” Do said. “I thank them for their commitments to this issue.”

Parking problems >> A Unionville High School senior came in front of the school board at the end of the meeting to bring up the issue of expensive parking permits.

For a year-long parking pass, it costs each student roughly $200.

The student, who compared the price to Kennett High School, said the rival district charged only $20.

He went on to describe how the price takes most of his paycheck, but he needs to have his car because of his extracurricular activities and job.

The board said they will do some research into the other districts in the county and also in Delaware County.
