AB 2291 signed into law on September 18, 2018 will add Education Code section 234.4 to the Education Code and require schools to adopt procedures, on or before December 31, 2019, for preventing acts of bullying and cyber bullying. In addition, the Department of Education is currently tasked with providing an online training module to assist school staff, administrators, parents, pupils, and community members in increasing their knowledge of bullying and cyberbullying. Local educational agencies, including school districts, local offices of education, and charter schools, must now make these materials available to all school employees who interact regularly with students.
