Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code. Requires the State Board of Education to (i) develop a model youth suicide awareness and prevention policy; (ii) compile, develop, and post on its Internet website recommended guidelines and educational materials for professional educator training and recommended resources and age-appropriate educational materials on youth suicide awareness and prevention; and (iii) develop a model youth suicide awareness and prevention curriculum and make such curriculum available to all school districts and, upon request, to nonpublic schools. Requires each school board to (i) adopt an age-appropriate youth suicide awareness and prevention policy and (ii) require 4 hours of training in youth suicide awareness and prevention every 5 years for professional educators in school buildings serving students in any of grades 6 through 12. Effective immediately.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the contents of the bill with the following changes. Provides that the amendatory provisions may be referred to as Ann Marie's Law. Requires the State Board of Education to compile, develop, and post recommended guidelines and educational materials for training and professional development (instead of for required training). Removes the requirement that the State Board develop a model youth suicide awareness and prevention curriculum. Removes the requirement that a school board require training in youth suicide awareness and prevention for professional educators. Effective immediately.

House Floor Amendment No. 1
Requires consultation with organizations representing school boards and school personnel in the development of a model policy. Allows a school board to review and update its current suicide awareness and prevention policy to be consistent with the youth suicide awareness and prevention provisions instead of adopting a policy consistent with those provisions.
