Iowa's Safe Schools Law
Effective September 1, 2007, Iowa Code Chapter 280 requires both public and private schools to establish policies prohibiting harassment and bullying against students by employees, school volunteers, or other students. Sexual Orientation and Gender identity are covered under the Safe Schools Law. Students may now seek remedies under both Chapter 216 and Chapter 280.
Immediately report bullying or harassment with our online bullying and harassment report form. Teachers and administrators can not act to protect you if they know nothing about the harassment and bullying you are facing.
