      In our Fox 31 News Facebook Story of the Day, you wanted to know; how do schools address Cyber Bullying?

      We talked to officials at the Dougherty County School System.

      They say it's a new problem, but also one they take very seriously. So they've put together a training program to educate teachers and students.

      "Before the school year began we did training with the faculty and staff at each school and it was their requirement to take it back to their individual schools and from there the teachers would relay it to the students and from there we did some follow up to make sure it was done, and it was done," said J.C. Phillips.

      According to the iSafe Foundation over half of teenagers report being the victims of cyber bullying, and most of them never tell their parents when it occurs.
