SALEM — The Oregon House on Monday unanimously approved a bill that aims to reduce cyberbullying among school children.

Senate Bill 1555 would require all school employees to be designated mandatory reporters of student harassment, including intimidation and cyberbullying. School districts themselves would be responsible for setting the penalty for an employee who failed to make such a report.

House Co-Speaker Arnie Roblan, a Coos Bay Democrat, described the “brave” testimony that several Oregon students had provided on the bill this session. ~ Click Here to Read More.
