Some people, advocacy groups and Iowa school districts have been seeking innovative ways to battle bullying of students.

A website being launched this month,, will take reports from students and parents and forward the reports to school districts.

The website is run by the Eychaner Foundation, a Des Moines nonprofit group that says it wants to promote tolerance and nondiscrimination.

Iowa law requires school districts to report bullying cases to the Iowa Department of Education. But last year, more than half of Iowa school districts didn't report any bullying.

Foundation executive director Michael Bowser says there are many reasons for why reports aren't being made, but he says the website could make it easier to report bullying.
