Dispatch from Jones St: House Education Committee Passes the School Violence Prevention Act

The School Violence Prevention Act cleared another hurdle today by receiving  favorable report from the House Education Committee.

This bill will now be re-referred to the House Judiciary 1 Committee.

This bill standardizes the definition of bullying behavior and includes enumerated categories of students who are most likely to be bullied based on national data.

The Arc of North Carolina has been in support of this bill and has been working on the passage of this bill for the past two sessions.
