Specifies instruction requirements. Requires the regional superintendent of schools to monitor a school district's compliance with the curriculum requirements. Effective July 1, 2019.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 1
With regard to the unit of instruction studying the significant role of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender individuals in society, provides that the State Board of Education may post on its publicly accessible Internet website recommended resources and education materials (rather than may prepare and make available to all school boards instructional materials) that may be used by a school board for development of the instruction. Removes a provision providing that the regional superintendent of schools shall monitor a school district's compliance with the curriculum requirements during his or her annual compliance visit.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Deletes reference to:

Provides that, in public schools only, the teaching of history of the United States shall include a study of the roles and contributions of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people in the history of this country and this State. Effective July 1, 2019.
