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.
Boise State University has received a campus grant from the federal Office of Violence Against Women, and this grant has allowed the Gender Equity Center to expand its on-campus efforts to keep the campus safe. The Gender Equity Center is among the wide variety of resources available for students on campus, including survivors of relationship violence.
