Statement from Commissioner Cassellius on Passage of the Safe and Supportive Schools Act:

ROSEVILLE – Today, Minnesota Education Commissioner Brenda Cassellius released the following statement after Governor Mark Dayton signed the Safe and Supportive Schools Act:

“Today, I stand with students, parents, and educators across the state to say thank you to Governor Dayton and the Minnesota Legislature for supporting and passing the Safe and Supportive Schools Act. All of our students deserve safe and supportive places where they can learn, thrive and succeed. With Governor Dayton’s signature, Minnesota will no longer have one of the weakest anti-bullying laws in the nation, but instead will have a law that states clearly that Minnesotans are committed to putting our students’ safety first.”
