Sen. Alessandra Biaggi, D-Pelham, Westchester County, a survivor of child sexual abuse, called the bill a "critical step to protect the safety of our children."

"This legislation will empower children to speak up if they feel unsafe by providing students with the tools to report instances of sexual abuse and prevent further harm," Biaggi said in a statement last month.
