KAUKAUNA - FOX 11 has a follow-up in the case of alleged bullying at a Kaukauna middle school.
Superintendent Mark Duerwaechter told the Kaukauna school board Monday night an investigation confirmed the incident was in fact bullying.
He also said the district is working to improve it policies concerning bullying.
Matthew Bent says he's glad the incident has been resolved.
When Bent heard his son was allegedly bullied at school, he posted a message on his Facebook page holding the Kaukauna school district accountable.
The post went viral with almost a half a million shares to date.
The incident happened about two weeks ago at River View Middle School.
Bent claimed his son was body-slammed several times during a gym class.
Bent says he has been in talks with the superintendent for the past week and a half.
Duerwaechter told the school board Monday night several students involved in the alleged bullying have been held accountable.
Bent says he is satisfied that those responsible have been punished.
"I'm going to go ahead and take him for his word. That this is a situation he feels confident in. That they have put resolve to," said Matthew Bent, victim's father.
Superintendent Duerwaechter turned down FOX 11's request for an interview.
The school district did released a statement, in which the superintendent is quoted as saying: "We will continue to evaluate what we did well in this matter, and what we can improve upon and apply the learning for future incidents," said Mark Duerwaechter, Kaukauna Area School District Superintendent.
As far as the victim in this case, Matthew Bent says his son is doing well so far. He says his son has been back at school for a week now and there have been no backlashes from other students.
