LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The Little Rock School District held the first of several anti-bullying meetings Thursday evening.

The advisory committee discussed plans to address bullying within the school district and plan to conduct studies, identify problems and develop recommendations to improve ways to deal with bullying.

Julian Calzada, a representative from LULAC, said it's important to bring such a diverse group of people together.

"It's the general public coming together to bring up some fresh ideas on a universal problem that affects everybody in the families and especially the school students, of course. And trying to get something implemented to the school board and that will hope to correct the problem or try to fix the problem," she said.

This committee -- made up of parents, faith-based organizations, community members, students and district staff -- will continue meet once a month.
