Assembly Bill 500 was recently approved by Governor Brown and adds language to Education Code Section 44050, which requires districts to do the following:
Beginning July 1, 2018, school districts must 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. Please click on the link below for the Code of Conduct in English, Spanish, and other home languages.
