AN  ACT  to  amend  the education law, in relation to instruction on the
  history of people with disabilities

  THE PEOPLE OF THE STATE OF NEW YORK, REPRESENTED IN SENATE AND  ASSEM-
BLY, DO ENACT AS FOLLOWS:

  Section  1.  Legislative findings. The legislature has determined that
it is necessary and appropriate to take steps to encourage greater know-
ledge and to decrease bullying in our schools.
  In this regard, many states have already enacted school-based programs
to improve the understanding and acceptance of children  with  disabili-
ties.  The legislature now finds and declares that the New York Board of
Regents should make available to students, teachers  and  administrators
in  public  and  private  schools  resources that will encourage greater
understanding and acceptance of children with disabilities as defined in
section forty-four hundred one of the education law.
  S 2. Subdivision 5 of section 801 of the education law,  as  added  by
chapter 265 of the laws of 2000, is amended to read as follows:
  5.  The  regents  shall make available to all elementary AND SECONDARY
schools in the state  [suitable  curriculum  materials  to]  EDUCATIONAL
MATERIALS  TO  BE DISTRIBUTED EITHER BY MAIL OR ELECTRONICALLY WHICH aid
in the instruction of pupils in grades kindergarten through [six] TWELVE
in the understanding and acceptance of  children  with  disabilities  as
defined  in section forty-four hundred one of this chapter.  THE REGENTS
MAY CONSULT WITH DISABILITY PROVIDERS, THE MUSEUM OF DISABILITY,  EDUCA-
TIONAL ORGANIZATIONS OR OTHERS AS THEY MAY SEE FIT.

 EXPLANATION--Matter in ITALICS (underscored) is new; matter in brackets
                      [ ] is old law to be omitted.
