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.
