— Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has signed a bill requiring schools to prohibit cyberbullying.

The bill also expands opportunities for parents to participate in Parents as Teachers programs.

Sebelius said Friday that with more children staying after school to participate in activities or use the Internet, it's important for every child to feel safe and secure.

The bill requires school districts to prohibit bullying using school property and include the prohibition of cyberbullying.

It also expands the age of eligibility for students who qualify for parent education programs to any child under the age of eligibility to attend school, instead of just children under age 3.
