Principals would have 15 days to resolve disputes between students who aren't in legally 'protected' groups

While you have all dithered, many students of all kinds have been bullied, and the bullies rewarded by teachers and administrators. Badly done.

@My Take,

Yeah, because without this policy our schools can't address bullying!

Will the committee meeting meeting (1-3PM) be available for online watching live or later, the same way the evening PAUSD board meetings are?

Here is a chance for Camille to bright again treating everyone with disrespect. She really enjoys these meetings, which are time waisting because she talks so much that she is stonewalling the progress. Hopefully we will be done before she finishes her term. Then we will ready make progress, especially when Dr. Skelly is leaving too. This meeting is nothing, but a joke. And no it will not be televised. They do them in the morning because they want no people to attend and they do not have to record them.
