HB 663

Bill Purpose:
Alters the school discipline protocol to avoid out-of-school disciplinary measures. Says students should be assessed for trauma when considering discipline.

Bill Sponsor:
Hughes (D)

Committee:
Education

OPEN Comments:
OPEN supports lessening out-of-school discipline and considering that trauma can be a factor in students’ behavior. However, the current trauma assessment framework can be problematic, so we would support an amendment proposing the use of a different tool. There is also a version of this bill in the Senate: SB 128.
