Classroom bullying has become a more serious issue since Donald Trump was elected president in one of the most divisive elections in history. 
 
The Southern Poverty Law Center reports more than 400 cases of possible election-related intimidation nationwide. 
 
160 of those cases happened in schools or universities. 
 
Coincidentally, the Kuna School District has been preparing for the past year to deal with all types of bullying. 
 
They created a task force of parents and have a plan to catch bullying in its early stages, something that has come in handy since the election. 
 
Kuna says it works to educate parents and children about how to deal with bullying on a daily basis.
