About the Efforts

School bullying has been a priority for Attorney General Jennings, as well as her predecessors, Attorneys General Matt Denn and Beau Biden. In 2012, then-Lt. Governor Denn partnered with then-Attorney General Beau Biden to persuade the General Assembly to passed two new laws related to bullying in the state’s public schools: Senate Bill 193, which focused on cyberbullying, and House Bill 268, which focused on reporting requirements.

The Department continues to take an active role in bullying and school violence, including through the daily work of its School Ombudsperson, who works with parents, students, and schools to help resolve conflict and protect children.
