SALT LAKE CITY — Schools may soon be required to notify parents if a child threatens to commit suicide or is involved with bullying, cyberbullying, harassment, hazing or retaliation.
On Friday, the House passed HB134, which requires that schools notify parents of such behavior and collect a signed statement from parents acknowledging they were notified. The bill, sponsored by Rep. Gage Froerer, R-Huntsville, also allows local school boards to create their own notification process.
The legislation passed with a 66-1 vote and will now head to the Senate.
