New York State Education Law 2801-a Amended
Effective July 1, 2019 New York State Education Law §2801-a was amended to require that every school district that employs or contracts with law enforcement or public or private security personnel, including through use of school resource officers, develop a written contract or memorandum of understanding (MOU) clearly delegating the role of school discipline to school administration.
