Will AB 1880 increase schools’ liability?
California schools are liable for ensuring that all students have access to a safe learning environment. When schools do not appropriately address dating abuse, they increase their liability. AB 1880 will make sure schools have a plan in place to address dating abuse so that they reduce their liability.
School safety plans already address child abuse and peer-to-peer violence, and now more are addressing bullying. It’s about time that schools also address dating abuse, so that all students can be safe at school
