End “Passing the Trash”

March 28, 2016

The Judiciary Committee approved legislation to ensure that local and regional boards of education have information concerning whether an applicant has been found to have committed abuse or sexual misconduct and that local and regional boards of education share findings with other boards of education who may otherwise unknowingly hire a sex offender.

Our top priority is to ensure that children are safe when they go to school every day. This is about shielding students from sexual predators and ensuring that such incidents are disclosed so that students in other districts are safe too. I want to thank Rep. William Tong and Rep. Dan Fox for their hard work on this issue.
