CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Charlotte - Mecklenburg school (CMS) district has a new way to fight bullying. The campaign is called "Stand up and Speak Out".
The district is teaming up with CBS radio and the community to bring more awareness to bullying.
Students will sign pledges. They will agree to treat all students with kindness and respect and to let someone in authority know when they witness bullying.
A website will also be created giving students more support and give victims more information about where to go for help.
"I think it is the most vital piece in making this happen," CMS administrator Debra Kaclik said. "Making our community a better place to live and to care about one another."
Organizers say Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx's office will partner with this new initiative.
The website should be up and running by the end of October.
