“I just think it’s so important to make sure that all of them are protected through every grade.
Rodrigues’ bill, HB 1391, would hold school districts accountable if they fail to report certain misconduct to law enforcement, including by docking the superintendent’s salary.
“Students can be really afraid of what the results of that could be, and that’s just not fair to them,” she said.

An investigation revealed that the officer had used law enforcement databases to target high school students who were 18 or older, she said.
“It’s really scary to think that even at a high school not all of the students are protected,” Mariano told the Herald/Times Tallahassee Bureau.
When the teacher found out that she was under investigation, according to Rodrigues, she left the school district and the investigation ended.
The woman was able to keep her teaching certificate and got a job with a state agency where she has direct contact with children, Rodrigues said.
Mary Anne Franks, a University of Miami law professor who teaches criminal and First Amendment law, raised similar concerns.
She said the proposed law does not appear to be constitutional given a 2003 Supreme Court ruling that criminalizing private, intimate activity between consenting adults violates liberty and privacy rights guaranteed by the 14th Amendment.

Alex Osuna, then 34, a marine science teacher and girl’s lacrosse team coach at Miami Palmetto Senior High, and Darryl Ward, then 49, a security guard at Coral Reef Senior High and a part-time coach for the school’s football and track and field teams, quit their jobs within a day of each other.
The hope is that these provisions will keep teachers who prey on students from falling through the cracks, Rodrigues told the Herald/Times.
