Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the School Code. Requires a public school, including a charter school, to provide reasonable accommodations to a lactating pupil on a school campus to express breast milk, breastfeed an infant child, or address other needs related to breastfeeding. Sets forth what reasonable accommodations include. Provides that (i) a lactating pupil on a school campus must be provided a reasonable amount of time to accommodate her need to express breast milk or breastfeed an infant child, (ii) a public school shall provide the reasonable accommodations only if there is at least one lactating pupil on the school campus, (iii) a public school may use an existing facility to meet the requirements, and (iv) a pupil may not incur an academic penalty as a result of her use, during the school day, of the reasonable accommodations and must be provided the opportunity to make up any work missed due to such use. Sets forth a complaint procedure.

House Committee Amendment No. 2
Replaces everything after the enacting clause with provisions of the introduced bill with the following changes: Provides that, in instances where a student files a complaint of noncompliance with the provisions, the public school shall implement the grievance procedures of adopted rules concerning sex equity, including appeals procedures (rather than instituting an appeal to the school board and the State Board of Education). Makes other changes.
