Delaware lawmakers are considering a measure that would end requiring school officials to report to police incidents of bullying in which there are no injuries.

Delaware Attorney General Matt Denn has proposed to eliminate the requirement that all fights be reported to law enforcement authorities.

WBOC reports that he points out there 130 students were sent to the police involving non-injury incidents.

The measure also requires the schools to inform parents that the Attorney General’s office is available if they believe an issue is not being addressed.

He said that his health has not limited his ability to work full time.

He talked with the paper by ;hone this week from the Modern Maturity Center in Dover when he went to visit a workshop for homeowners facing foreclosure organized by the Justice Department.

A kindergarten teacher was arrested on Friday at a Dover park, after he attempted to meet with who he thought was a 13-year-old girl, but who was actually an undercover detective posing online as a child.

 

Officials say 31-year-old Scott R. Gibson, of Bear, traveled to Dover to meet with the fictional “girl” he had solicited and messaged in an online chat room.
