ASCIP members are encouraged to inform their staff of Assembly Bill 1785 that has tightened restrictions on cellphone use while driving. A person is now prohibited from driving a motor vehicle while holding and operating a handheld wireless phone or electronic wireless communications device unless the phone or device is specifically designed and configured to allow voice-operated and hands-free operation, and is used in that manner while driving.
Dear ASCIP Members:
We are aware that many school districts throughout the nation are facing troubling incidents of intolerance and/or bullying in and outside of their campuses in the wake of the recent presidential election. While it appears that the number of occurrences is declining, it goes without saying that it is advisable that all districts be on alert and prepared for further episodes until at least the presidential inauguration in January, and perhaps beyond.

The nation maintains a strong tradition for the peaceful transition of power. I want to let all of California’s 6.2 million public school students know that keeping them safe from discrimination and bullying at our great state’s 11,000 public schools is a top priority.”

ASCIP offers the following suggestions as best practices for preventing and addressing events on campuses:
