SALEM, Ore. (AP) — A bill aimed at reducing cyberbullying among schoolchildren has cleared the Oregon House and is now headed to Gov. John Kitzhaber for consideration.

The House voted unanimously Monday to require school employees to be report student harassment, including intimidation and cyberbullying.

The Register-Guard reports (http://bit.ly/yyOLUL ) that school districts would be responsible for setting the penalty for an employee who failed to make such a report.

If approved by the governor, the measure would take effect July 1.
