Commerce ISD superintendent Charlie Alderman discusses a recently enacted Texas law that allow for schools to take action for cyberbullying by students who post bullying messages from home.  It's called "David's Law," for David Molak, a 16-year-old San Antonio student who was the victim of cyberbullying.  Otherwise, the superintendent discusses a recent "superior" rating for the Commerce ISD's financial management, and the effect of the new school calendar, in which the school year started in early August, allowing for more frequent breaks.
