Northam signs Del. Eileen Filler-Corn’s boundaries education bill into law

eileen filler cornGov. Ralph Northam signed Delegate Eileen Filler-Corn’s (D-Springfield) bill, HB 45 in the Cabinet Conference Room of the Patrick Henry Building in Richmond.

This legislation will require any family life education curriculum offered in any elementary school, middle school, or high school to incorporate age-appropriate elements of effective and evidence-based programs on the importance of the personal privacy and personal boundaries of other individuals and tools for a student to use to respect the personal privacy and personal boundaries of other individuals.

This legislation builds upon Delegate Filler-Corn’s legislation signed into law from previous years including HB 2257 (2017), which provides that schools can teach about the law and meaning of consent, HB 1709 (2017), which requires principals to notify parents if their child is a part of a bullying investigation, as well as HB 659 (2016), which requires any high school family life education curriculum offered by a local school division to incorporate age-appropriate elements of effective and evidence-based programs on the prevention of dating violence, domestic abuse, sexual harassment, and sexual violence.

“HB 45 tackles two major priorities of mine, combatting sexual assault and bullying,” said Filler-Corn. “This bill is all about prevention,” she added.

HB 45 passed out of the House of Delegates and the Senate during the 2018 General Assembly Session. The law will take effect on July 1, 2018.
