Existing law requires school districts, county offices of education, and charter schools (LEA) adopt comprehensive safety plans for their schools that contain processes they will follow to ensure the health and safety of pupils and staff.  Exiting law identifies the components that must be included in the school safety plans.

SB 671 requires LEAs include procedures to assess and respond to reports of any dangerous, violent, or unlawful activity that is being conducted or threatened to be conducted at the school, at any activity sponsored by the school, or on a school bus serving the school.

The bill also requires that schools of LEAs that serve pupils in grades 7 to 12 include a protocol in the event a pupil is suffering or is reasonably believed to be suffering from an opioid overdose.

The bill also includes additional non-substantive changes.

(SB 671 amends Sections 32282, 47605, and 47605.6 of the Education Code.)
