Lindsay Ann Burke Act

SECTION 16-85-2



   § 16-85-2  Legislative findings. –

The general assembly hereby finds, determines and declares that when a student

is a victim of dating violence, his or her academic life suffers and his or her

safety at school is jeopardized. The general assembly therefore finds that a

policy to create an environment free of dating violence shall be a part of each

school district. It is the intent of the general assembly to enact legislation

that would require each school district to establish a policy for responding to

incidents of dating violence and to provide dating violence education to

students, parents, staff, faculty and administrators, in order to prevent

dating violence and to address incidents involving dating violence. All

students have a right to work and study in a safe, supportive environment that

is free from harassment, intimidation and violence.
