Date posted: July 19th, 2018

Ohio passed legislation to improve school climate and safety, increase student social emotional supports and reduce suspensions in pre-k – 3rd grade.House Bill 318 (132nd GA) includes guidelines and standards for school resource officers (SROs) to better clarify the SRO role and ensure SROs have an understanding of child and adolescent development, as well as training in age-appropriate practices for conflict resolution and de-escalation. The SAFE Act (“Supporting Alternatives for Education” formerly SB 246) is also included in HB 318, which seeks to reduce the removal of young students from school for disciplinary reasons and instead address the contributing causes for challenging classroom behavior.
