LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

On the same day, a photo was snapped of a student in her undergarments at Durango High School, a video was taken of a 15-year-old getting attacked at Palo Verde High School. 

The Palo Verde High School student was allegedly getting bullied by a classmate in the lunchroom.

These two incidents happened on school grounds, and both involved students putting it all over social media.

"She has a few scratches, but I think her scars are more emotional scars at this moment," said the victim's mother, Lucia Rojas.

Rojas has video of the attack on her daughter and said she wanted to come forward to shed light on bullying in schools.

"She has to relive it with every recount, with every retweet," Rojas said.

Clark County School District has repeatedly declined comment on both cases. Rojas said that it wasn't until the attack was mentioned in the media that she finally received a call back from the school district on Thursday.

The school district sent FOX5 guidelines defining bullying behavior and tips on creating a safe and respectful learning environment. CCSD says it has a zero-tolerance policy for cyber bullying.

"I believe that these policies don't go far enough, and I believe they need to lay the law down," said Terri Miller, president of Stop Educator Sexual Abuse, Misconduct & Exploitation.

Miller called the policies "common school district rhetoric."

"Training, lack of training. There is not sufficient training going on in our school systems to catch up with technology," Miller said.
