MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker has signed a bill that creates a pilot program to record crime and bullying in schools.

The bill calls the program to include one urban school district, one suburban district and one rural district for the 2016-17 school year. Districts who wish to participate will have to apply to the state Department of Public Instruction.

The participating districts will maintain a record of all crimes, harassment and bullying that takes place on school property, on buses and other district transportation as well as at school events.

Walker signed the bill privately on Tuesday.
