Florida FS 1006.147- The “Jeffery Johnston Stand Up for All Students Act” was enacted in April 2008. This law provides a legal definition for bullying which includes bullying that occurs over the computer using school networks on or off school property. The law mandates each school district to promptly develop a code of conduct against all bullying and harassment. The code of conduct must include procedures for identifying incidents of bullying, determining if the incident occurred within the school district, parental notification and when appropriate notification of law enforcement authorities, and counseling services to victims of bullying. The law also contains a monitoring system to report bullying.
