Following an apparent bullying incident this month at Normandin Middle School where a student was seriously hurt, Supt. Pia Durkin is planning a forum to discuss school violence.

Durkin says an anti-bullying program is stressed in all middle schools, but schools can't do it alone. Durkin tells WBSM News, families must do their part and partner with schools...

The forum is scheduled for April 30th at 6:30pm at Normandin and families from all the middle schools and alternative schools are invited.

Durkin says another forum will be held in the near future for parents of students at New Bedford High School.
