Gallard added that the school district was informed two days ago of the girls' being sent back to the school where the alleged bullying occurred and was "investigating."
"The investigation will take us a few days," he said. "We're going to take a look at what happened."
But Joseph said the district isn't moving fast enough and, until the issue is resolved -- and Tiffany can attend a new school -- she'll be sitting at home.
"We read but there's no recourse, there's not much we can do," Joseph said when asked how her daughter is keeping up with her studies.
"With all these kids who have killed themselves after being bullied," she said, "all I can say is that it won't be one of mine."
