SD Bullying Policy Bill Moves To Senate Floor



Bookmark and Share

A South Dakota Senate Committee has passed an amended bill encouraging school districts without a bullying policy to adopt one and telling districts with policies in place to review them.
 
The bill endorsed by the Senate Education Committee on a 7-0 vote Thursday does not require schools to have the policies.
 
Senators say the bill that now goes to the full Senate for a vote is a compromise between a prescriptive bill offered by Republican Sen. Dan Lederman of Dakota Dunes and an encouragement bill promoted by Attorney General Marty Jackley.
 
The legislation also defines bullying to include physical hurt or psychological distress involving threat, stalking, violence and other conduct directed at students.
