Comments: IL SB0456 | 2019-2020 | 101st General Assembly

Bill Title: Reinserts the provisions of the engrossed bill as amended by House Amendment No. 1 with the following changes. Provides that, every 2 years, each school district must review all existing policies and procedures concerning sexual abuse investigations at schools (rather than must adopt and implement a policy addressing sexual abuse investigations at schools) to ensure consistency with policies adopted under the School Code. Provides that, as a condition of employment, each school board must consider the status of a person who has been issued an indicated finding of abuse or neglect of a child by the Department of Children and Family Services under the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act or by a child welfare agency of another jurisdiction (rather than no school board shall knowingly employ a person who has been issued those indicated findings). Changes the definition of "alleged incident of sexual abuse". Makes changes to what a school must comply with after an alleged incident of sexual abuse is accepted for investigation by the Department of Children and Family Services or a law enforcement agency and while the investigations are being conducted by the local multidisciplinary team. With regard to the Personnel Record Review Act, provides that certain disclosure requirements under the Act do not apply to a school district who is sharing information related to an incident or an attempted incident of sexual abuse or severe physical abuse (rather than a school district responding to an inquiry from a prospective employer). Makes other changes. Effective immediately.
