    All 13,000 middle and high school students in Oakland Unified School District will be required to watch the movie "Bully" as part of an  anti-bullying program launched this week.

    Between now and Oct. 4, every middle and high school student in the district will take a field trip to the Regal Theater in Jack London Square for a private screening sponsored by the film's makers, district  officials said Sunday.

    The documentary, directed by Lee Hirsch, will be used to engage students in anti-violence discussions as part of an effort to make Oakland schools safer and more supportive.

    The first screening will take place Monday at 9:45 a.m. at the Jack London Regal Theaters, 100 Washington St. in Oakland.
