LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Nebraska lawmaker wants to require the state Department of Education to develop a child sexual abuse policy.
Legislature's Education Committee will consider a bill by Hoskins Sen.
Dave Bloomfield on Tuesday that would encourage schools to adopt
guidelines for handling sex abuse cases.
Bloomfield's bill says
the Department of Education would create an example policy that could be
replicated by schools leaders who wish to create child abuse policies.
bill would require schools that adopt child sexual abuse policies to
include the policy in the school handbook, teach students about the
policy and offer child sexual abuse training to staff.
