California’s New Bullying Law
On July 1, 2012, California’s new bullying law, Assembly Bill 1156 went into effect, making teachers and school administrators legally obligated to do something when a student reports bullying. If they do not comply with these laws, the student is allowed to transfer to a new school district.
The bill, also known as “Seth’s Law” states:
This bill revises the existing definition of bullying, requires training in the prevention of bullying, and authorizes a pupil who has been a victim of bullying to transfer to another district.
