        AN  ACT  to  amend  the education law, in relation to including private,

          for all students act"

     2  the laws of 2010, is amended to read as follows:
     3    § 10. Legislative intent. The legislature finds that students' ability
     4  to learn and to meet high academic standards, and a school's ability  to
     5  educate  its students, are compromised by incidents of discrimination or
     6  harassment including bullying, taunting or intimidation.  It  is  hereby
     7  declared to be the policy of the state to afford all students [in public
     8  schools]  an  environment  free  of  discrimination  and harassment. The
     9  purpose of this article is to foster civility in [public] schools and to
    10  prevent and prohibit conduct  which  is  inconsistent  with  a  school's
    11  educational mission.
    12    §  2.  Subdivision  1  of section 11 of the education law, as added by
    13  chapter 482 of the laws of 2010, is amended to read as follows:
    14    1. "School property" shall mean in or within any building,  structure,
    15  athletic playing field, playground, parking lot, or land contained with-
    16  in  the  real  property  boundary  line  of  [a public] an elementary or
    17  secondary school; or in or on a school bus, as defined  in  section  one
    18  hundred forty-two of the vehicle and traffic law.
    19    §  3.  Section 17 of the education law, as added by chapter 482 of the
    20  laws of 2010, is amended to read as follows:
    21    § 17. Application. Nothing in this article shall[:
    22    1. Apply to private, religious or  denominational  educational  insti-
    23  tutions; or
