TWIN FALLS, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) — As a parent, when you send your children to school, you want them to be safe.
One Twin Falls father learned, however, that not only was his daughter attacked on campus but there was video evidence of the altercation.
One evening in mid-October, Leslie Montgomery said her daughter received a barrage of emails to her school email account. Montgomery said her daughter— a seventh grader at the Christian private school Greenleaf Friends Academy — had been the subject of bullying by fellow students since enrolling in the school last year.
Idaho high school students reported less bullying, cigarette smoking and sexual activity in the State Department of Education’s biannual youth risk behavior survey. But teens reported increased e-cigarette use, feelings of hopelessness and suicidal thoughts.
For many young adults, college is a time full of excitement and exploration. However, this time can also be challenging for students' mental health. For this reason it’s important to know the common warning signs of mental health issues and the resources that are available to students for help.
The University of Nebraska Public Policy Center is partnering with Boys Town to oversee the administration of a new $1.28 million grant from the United States Department of Justice to evaluate and expand the Safe2HelpNE school reporting system.
When students apply to a four-year college or university directly from high school, they know they want to earn at least a bachelor’s degree. Not all students who enroll in community colleges have the same clarity about their future. A new program aims to help by making it easier to transfer credits and otherwise ease the transition for students who want to earn a four-year degree.
