NEVADA – Nevada Governor Joe Lombardo has been busy signing bills into law, and in addition to the state’s latest education bill, he has also signed two bills focused on school safety. On Wednesday, AB330 and AB285 officially became law, introducing measures to enhance discipline practices and maintain a safe learning environment for students.
AB330 addresses the discipline of profoundly gifted pupils in charter schools and universities. The law mandates that suspension or expulsion of such students should align with the punishments imposed in certain public schools. Additionally, the legislation requires schools to incorporate certain data pertaining to pupil discipline when formulating restorative discipline plans. In cases where schools fail to take specific actions related to pupil discipline, the Superintendent is now empowered to enforce alternative plans for restorative discipline. The complete text of AB330 can be accessed [here](insert link).
Meanwhile, AB285 modifies the requirements for the utilization of restorative disciplinary practices in public schools. The new law removes certain mandates and instead mandates that certain schools establish a progressive discipline plan based on restorative justice for designated students. By promoting restorative practices, the legislation seeks to foster a positive and inclusive school environment.
These bills reflect the state’s commitment to ensuring consistent disciplinary measures and promoting restorative practices in educational institutions. By maintaining discipline standards across schools and encouraging alternative approaches to student discipline, Nevada aims to create a safe and supportive learning environment for all students.
