JEFFERSON CITY — A bill that would expand child abuse protections and require sexual harassment training for students in sixth grade and older continues to make its way through the legislature.

The bill, which already passed the House, would require full disclosure between school districts about an employee regarding abusive behavior toward a student, and it would require schools to ask a prospective employee’s former school for this information before hiring.
