Assembly Bill 500 was recently approved by the Governor and adds language to Education Code Section 44050, which requires districts to do the following:
- Commencing July 1, 2018, provide a written copy of the section on employee interactions with pupils in its employee code of conduct to parents/guardians of each enrolled pupil at the beginning of each school year; and
- By January 1, 2018, post the code via a link on school websites.
The Los Angeles Unified School District fulfills the requirements of this bill by:
- Annually distributing the Parent Student Handbook, which includes information on employees’ interactions with pupils under the Code of Conduct with Students; and
- Posting this Code of Conduct with Students link as notice on each school’s website.
