	LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


   AB 1993, Fox. Pupils: bullying.
   Existing law, the Interagency School Safety Demonstration Act of
1985, among other things, requires the Department of Justice and the
State Department of Education to contract with one or more
professional trainers to coordinate statewide workshops for school
districts, county offices of education, and schoolsite personnel, and
in particular school principals, to assist them in the development
of their respective school safety and crisis response plans, and
provide training in the prevention of bullying, as defined.
   This bill would require the department to develop an online
training module to assist all school staff, school administrators,
parents, pupils, and community members in increasing their knowledge
of the dynamics of bullying and cyberbullying, as specified.


THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF CALIFORNIA DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  SECTION 1.  Section 32283.5 is added to the Education Code, to
read:
   32283.5.  The department shall develop an online training module
to assist all school staff, school administrators, parents, pupils,
and community members in increasing their knowledge of the dynamics
of bullying and cyberbullying. The online training module shall
include, but is not limited to, identifying an act of bullying or
cyberbullying, and implementing strategies to address bullying and
cyberbullying.
