Three teachers spoke for just under 10 minutes at Wednesday night's Buffalo School Board meeting. They expressed concern for their students' safety, citing bullying and harassment that's become "common" in the school.

Multiple other teachers and families were in attendance at the meeting to support the educators speaking to the school board. The school district says it will be looking into the concerns, and added the safety and security of all students and staff is its top priority.

Superintendent Dr. Kriner Cash responded at the end of the meeting, saying a team is evaluating the situation. That team will put in an action plan "over the next several weeks" to tackle the issues.
