Educational News

Governor Murphy signed into law recently the following law:

Sexual Consent Instruction

A-2190/S-3108 (P.L. 2019, c.16) would require a school district to incorporate instruction in grades 6-12 on the meaning of consent for physical contact and sexual activity as part of the district’s implementation of the NJ Student Learning Standards in comprehensive health and physical education. The law goes into effect for the 2019-2020 school year.

The NJ Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee advanced the following school-related measures:

Using Schools for Child Care Services

S-3330 authorizes school districts to provide child care services at district facilities for children younger than school age. The child care services may be provided by the district itself, a sponsor approved by the school board, or a child care program licensed by the state. The bill, referred to as the “Teddy Bear Academy” bill is the result of an issue emanating from the Evesham School District. There, the school board had contracted with the Teddy Bear Academy to provide daycare at school facilities that had become vacant through attrition. Competitors of the Teddy Bear Academy objected that the law currently does not allow this arrangement. This bill fixes that issue.
