ChangeServant, tracking this bill in Photosynthesis, notes:

Ask your legislators to vote NO on this bill that would require principals of schools to feed the school to prison pipeline by reporting to police any behavior that could be criminal. The law was recently changed to only require reports of felonies. This bill would change that back.
