LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 624, as introduced, Gabriel. Pupil and student health: identification cards: sexual assault and domestic violence hotline telephone numbers.
Existing law requires public and private postsecondary educational institutions and private vocational educational institutions to each adopt, and implement at each of their respective campuses or other facilities, a written procedure or protocols to ensure, to the fullest extent possible, that students, faculty, and staff who are victims of sexual assault receive treatment and information, as provided. Existing law requires the governing board of each community college district, the Trustees of the California State University, the Regents of the University of California, and the governing boards of independent postsecondary institutions, in order to receive state funds for student financial assistance, to adopt a policy concerning sexual assault, domestic violence, dating violence, and stalking involving a student both on and off campus.
Existing law requires a public school, including a charter school, or a private school, that serves pupils in any of grades 7 to 12, inclusive, and that issues pupil identification cards to have printed on either side of the pupil identification cards the telephone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, and authorizes those schools to have printed on either side of the pupil identification cards the Crisis Text Line and a local suicide prevention hotline telephone number. Existing law requires a public or private institution of higher education that issues student identification cards to have printed on either side of the student identification cards the telephone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, and authorizes the institution to have printed on either side of the student identification cards the Crisis Text Line, the campus police or security telephone number, or the local nonemergency telephone number, as provided, and a local suicide prevention hotline telephone number.
This bill, commencing July 1, 2020, would require those same schools and postsecondary educational institutions, if they issue pupil or student identification cards, to have printed on the back of those identification cards the telephone numbers for the National Sexual Assault Hotline, the National Domestic Violence Hotline, and a sexual or reproductive health hotline. The bill would authorize those schools and postsecondary educational institutions to have printed on the back of those identification cards the telephone numbers for a local sexual assault hotline and a local domestic violence hotline. The bill would require schools and institutions subject to these requirements that have a supply of unissued, noncompliant identification cards as of January 1, 2020, to issue the noncompliant identification cards until that supply is depleted.
