New Law to Protect Illinois Students from Sexual Abuse

New Law to Protect Illinois Students from Sexual Abuse

(IOCI RADIO) – A new state law is designed to further protect Illinois students from sexual abuse at school.

Under the law, school administration must let school boards and parents know if a teacher is found to have engaged in sexual misconduct with a student. It also ensures teachers who are caught to have the incident recorded in their personnel file, so they can’t easily move to another district, Rep. Michelle Mussman of Schaumburg said.

The measure builds upon “Faith’s Law,” passed last year targeting teachers who groom students into having an inappropriate sexual relationship.
