Newport-Mesa school board members have officially adopted an anti-bullying policy, one they hope will prevent school violence of the kind that rocked Santana High School in San Diego County last week.

Newport-Mesa school board members tonight are expected to give final approval to a policy that would punish campus bullying as harshly as bringing a knife or a bottle of vodka to school--a policy that might be the first of its kind in the county.

Students who are caught bullying could be transferred to other district campuses and could also be referred to counseling.

The country also acted.
