Maine Township High School District 207 has hired a consulting company to lead focus groups addressing hazing and bullying, the Daily Herald reports.
Consulting company Community Matters has been hired by the district following the recent hazing allegations at Maine West High School.
Six Varsity boys’ soccer team players have been charged with hazing underclassman as part of initiation. Two soccer coaches have been fired as a result of the incident as well.
Community Matters will be leading focus groups at three high schools this spring. The group teaches kids and adults to “speak up when they see intolerance or incivility in the form of bullying and hazing,” the Daily Herald reports.
