AB610 (Asm. Kalra)

This bill increases school and educator discretion over the management of in-school student behaviors by eliminating current requirements that schools must notify law enforcement officials of on-campus incidents. The bill also repeals sections of Education code that prosecute/punish staff who fail to report or “willfully ignore” on-campus altercations, restoring flexibility in how educators make these consequential decisions and keeping students in school rather than bringing them to face the criminal justice system.
