A controversial bill was killed hours before the Arizona House was set to vote on it.
The "Dangerous Student Bill" would have required teachers to call the police if they felt a student showed immediate signs that they would harm themselves or others. Teachers would also need to tell the school district.
The police would then determine if the student needed a mental evaluation.
Lawmakers killed the bill because they felt it would hold teachers liable if they failed to report a student who ended up harming someone.
Instead they are asking the Department of Education to give teachers more information about mental illness.
