Tense Meeting Held After Another Moreno Valley School Assault

Another assault has occurred at a Moreno Valley school where a student recently sustained fatal injuries after an altercation on campus grounds.

Concerns about bullying erupted Tuesday during a tense meeting with the Moreno Valley Unified School District Board. The meeting took place one day after the latest alleged assault and one month after 13-year-old Diego Stolz’s death. Both students attended Landmark Middle School.

Students and parents made emotional pleas to the Board Tuesday, complaining about what they say has been a culture of bullying at the school and within the district.

One of the items of discussion for the Board was the district's BullyStop 360 program and how effective it actually is at preventing bullying.

“My question is how are we measuring the success of these programs,” Darrell Peeden, MVUSD board member, said (CBS). “If we don’t have a measuring tool, then we need one, and that is part of the problem.” 

Two female students have been arrested on suspicion of battery following the latest incident.
