Hundreds of Kershaw County School District (KCSD) school bus drivers took an oath Feb. 17 to do everything they can to combat bullying on their buses. Taking the oath was the culmination of a months-long partnership with The ALPHA Center. The ALPHA Center helped drivers to identify types of bullying, what to do if they suspect bullying is going on, how bullying affects students and tips drivers can use to intervene in or prevent bullying.
