     5  education provided by regular classroom teachers.
     6    2. The commissioner shall prescribe such rules and regulations regard-
     7  ing instruction on anti-gun violence as the commissioner may deem neces-
     8  sary and desirable for the health and welfare of pupils and the communi-
     9  ty.    The contents may be varied to meet the needs of particular school
    10  districts, or portions thereof, and need not be uniform  throughout  the
    11  state, provided, however, that school districts shall utilize either the
    12  curriculum  for  anti-gun violence instruction prescribed by the commis-
    13  sioner or a course approved  by  the  commissioner  in  accordance  with
    14  criteria established by the commissioner.
    15    3.  School  authorities  shall provide the needed facilities, time and
    16  place for the instruction set forth in this section  and  shall  provide
    17  learning  aids  and  curriculum  resource  materials which contribute to
    18  effective teaching methods and learning in anti-gun violence.
    19    § 2. This act shall take effect on the first of July  next  succeeding
    20  the  date  upon which it shall have become a law. Effective immediately,
    21  the addition, amendment and/or repeal of any rule or  regulation  neces-
    22  sary  for  the  implementation  of  this  act  on its effective date are
    23  authorized to be made on or before such date.
