A: A Colorado attorney could advise best, but your question remains open for three weeks. As a general premise, you could be confronted with the argument that no one has control over what individuals do off school property if that is where it happened. Anti-bullying polices have evolved in recent years, and many are district or region specific - only a Colorado attorney could meaningfully advise on this. You could reach out to local attorneys for their opinions. Good luck
