In response to new legislation (AB 9 "Seth's law"), Martinez Unified School District has strengthened its anti-bullying policies and programs. These policies specifically spell out the prohibited bases for bullying, including sexual orientation and gender identification/expression. In addition, MUSD has adopted specific processes for receiving and investigating complaints of bullying and has trained school staff on these processes. At the start of the 12/13 school year, students participated in an anti-bullying poster contest and the winning posters will be reproduced and posted throughout the district. Students and staff completed a bullying survey, the results of which will be used to design targeted interventions at schools.
