Students, teachers, parents, and families invited to Minnesota State Capitol for bill signing ceremony

Joined by legislators, parents, students, and teachers, Governor Mark Dayton plans to sign the Safe and Supportive Schools Act (HF826/SF783) into law at a public bill signing ceremony on Wednesday, April 9, at 4:00pm. The bill signing ceremony will take place on the steps of the Minnesota State Capitol. Minnesota students, parents, teachers, and families are invited to attend the event.

The Safe and Supportive Schools Act, which was passed by the Minnesota Legislature, strengthens protections against the threat of bullying in Minnesota schools. The new law will provide local school districts the guidance, support, and flexibility to adopt policies that will help protect all children from bullying, and reinforce the principles of tolerance and respect in our schools.

This event is free, and open to the press and public.
