Revises the law against hazing at high school and colleges, including reporting requirements. In general this bill adds many more specifics to the law and adds a felony penalty for aggravated hazing. At the time of this bill's submission, hazing is only a misdemeanor. This bill also requires the university system, the community college system, the higher education commission, and the state board of education to develop a statewide educational plan for preventing hazing, including an education program for students, staff, and volunteers. The bill also requires educational institutions to publish a public report on hazing at the institution.
