"I'm gonna ask for some help. This is my daughter," said Myre while holding a picture of her daughter Brittany at the beginning of the video posted on YouTube. "My daughter's being bullied and harassed and she's been physically attacked twice by the same child."
Myre has since pulled her daughter Brittany out of Fort Lupton Middle School. She says the school was non-responsive after Brittany was bitten by the girl in September, attacked electronically on Facebook, and attacked physically in the halls a few weeks ago.
"I'm getting harassed and bullied and I've never done anything to anybody," said Brittany, 14 years old.
Myre said she turned to police and turned to school officials, but she says she received no answers.
"That's why I did the YouTube video because of all the bullying," said Myre. "All the wrongness has got to stop."
On February 21, Myre went to the school to talk with the principal and assistant principal. She had asked for the school resource officer and her supervisor to be present. Police say during the meeting, Myre got angry, out-of-control, using profanity in the hallway around students before being asked to leave. Police say her tirade continued outside and that's when officers arrested Myre for disorderly conduct.
"My daughter's being harassed and bullied at school and you're gonna arrest me for coming in here and asking questions," said Myre. "That's pathetic."
Fort Lupton Police Chief Ken Poncelow says school employees felt threatened by Myre.
"We can't have somebody in our middle school, in the hallway, yelling profanities and yelling things about the school staff and our officers," said Poncelow.
Myre states in her video, "I have no one to turn to for help for us."
Superintendent Mark Paylor says he does not agree with Myre's opinion of the Weld County RE-8 School District.
"So, to say nothing is going on, I would challenge that perception and say the reality is, we're doing a lot about it."
Paylor says bullying is taken very seriously by his staff.
"We're reviewing those policies. We're updating those policies. We're trying to identify between what is bullying and normal conflict," said Paylor. "Twice-a-week, we have a bully proofing program that's presented. It's called Step Up."
At the end of the school day is a half-hour block called Access. On Tuesdays and Thursdays, teachers meet with students to talk specifically about bullying. They discuss things like the characteristics of a bully, the role of bystanders, and how they can intervene.
Paylor says the district has studied anti-bullying programs in other districts in Colorado and consulted with national experts. Last year, Fort Lupton Middle School was recognized as National Middle School of the Year by a national principal's association. Paylor says they try to do everything well.
"In fact, our middle school counselor today is at a bully proofing conference," said Paylor. "We've worked very hard to ensure the safety of our children, all of our children including Myre's children, as well."
Paylor points to a survey taken by an outside organization. The study shows that 80 percent of the student body responded and stated that incidents of bullying was significantly down from last year to this year.
"I would hope that this would indicate that what we're doing is working," said Paylor.
Myre and her daughter don't believe it.
"I think they make a good cover because I see a lot of kids being bullied and then nothing being done," said Myre.
Brittany says the anti-bullying training sessions don't change the reality of middle school life.
"All they do if someone is getting bullied, all they do is suspend them," said Brittany.
Myre's YouTube video has receive around 3,000 views. She says her 'campaign' is picking up steam.
"I want people to wake up and realize that you know what this is serious," said Myre. "It's not just about one physical fight. It's about it going on and on and on."
Paylor hopes people don't much credibility in Myre's video.
"I do think it's a very gross misrepresentation of who we are as a district," said Paylor.
Brittany says she wants to return to Fort Lupton Middle School to finish out her 8th grade year. But, she says things have to change at her school. That's why she's happy they've voiced their concerns to the world looking for support.
"If the school's not going to back us up," said Brittany. "Then, we might as well get people that have been bullied that have been to Fort Lupton."
