HARRISBURG – A bill, sponsored by Lancaster County Sen. Scott Martin, protecting young victims of sexual assault against the possibility of having to attend school with their attackers was signed into law. Act 110 of 2020 will require schools to remove any student convicted or adjudicated delinquent of sexual assault against another student enrolled at the same school. A school district will now be required to expel, transfer or reassign the offender to another school or educational program. Districts must ensure the offender is not educated in the same school building, transported on the same school vehicle or allowed to participate in the same school-sponsored activities as the victim.
