David’s Law combats bullying in Texas schools

Senate Bill 179, known as David’s Law, was enacted by the Legislature last year to combat and prevent bullying in schools.  The law amends Texas Education Code § 37.0832, so now “a single significant act” may constitute bullying, rather than a pattern of acts.

Bullying also includes cyberbullying, which is defined as “bullying that is done through the use of any electronic communication device, including through the use of a cellular or other type of telephone, a computer, a camera, electronic mail, instant messaging, text messaging, a social media application, an Internet website, or any other Internet-based communication tool.”
