Overall, Muscogee County School District's total number of reported bullying incidents has dropped about 46 percent -- from 623 in 2011-2012 to 335 in the current school year.

Elementary schools and high schools have cut their number of bullying incidents roughly in half since the 2011-2012 school year -- high schools dropping from 113 to 56 incidents, and elementary schools from 228 to 108.
