Melissa Moore, El Segundo’s Superintendent, has since established a district-wide safety plan and has added two student safety positions within two of the district’s elementary schools.
Moore also stated that the district “respects the ruling of the court and acknowledges the findings of the lawsuit.”
Eleri is now eighteen years old and shared that she is still traumatized from the period of torment. However, she has since forgiven her main bully and hopes that the jury’s ruling will help ensure what happened to her never happens again in El Segundo.
“I am so thankful that I have been able to share my experience and to actually be taken seriously so that the next time a child asks for help, the school will address it the way they should have for me,” she said.
