It's July 1: Do Your Anti-Bullying Policies Comply With The Law?

As of July 1, 2012, AB 9 requires that all school district anti-harassment/anti-discrimination board policies must include language prohibiting the intimidation and bullying based on the actual or perceived characteristics as set forth in Education Code 220. 

AB 9 also requires districts to have a complaint procedure in place for responding to allegations of bullying.

Do your board policies comply with the requirements set forth in AB 9?  If not, now is the time to revise them!
