Description

Board of Education; school boards; codes of student conduct; contents. Requires the Board of Education's guidelines and model policies for codes of student conduct to include a requirement that any code of student conduct is enforced and any student behavioral intervention or disciplinary method or measure is utilized in a fair, proportional, unbiased, and neutral manner, for the sole purpose of maintaining safe learning environments, and with full and sole consideration of the student's behavior and with no consideration of any individual immutable characteristic of the student such as the student's sex or race. The bill requires each school board to establish and continuously maintain a system of fair, proportional, unbiased, and neutral student behavioral intervention and discipline and prohibits any school board from establishing or maintaining any system of student behavioral intervention or discipline, including positive behavioral interventions and supports or any substantially similar disciplinary method, that targets or differentiates student behavioral interventions or disciplinary methods or measures based on any factor other than the student's behavior.
