Provides that, except for an educator licensed under the Educator Licensure Article of the Code, if a school board determines that any school district employee has willfully or negligently failed to report an instance of suspected child abuse or neglect, as required by the Abused and Neglected Child Reporting Act, then the school board may dismiss that employee immediately upon that determination. Provides that the State Superintendent of Education has the authority to initiate a suspension of or revoke the license of any educator licensed under the Educator Licensure Article of the Code if he or she negligently fails to report an instance of suspected child abuse or neglect.

Provides for the local Children's Advocacy Center's duties and the duties of a school. Provides that if, during the course of its internal investigation and at any point during or after the multidisciplinary team's investigation, a school determines that it needs to interview an alleged victim of sexual abuse to successfully complete its investigation and the victim is under 18 years of age, a child advocate must be made available to the student and must be present during the school's interview.

Replaces everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the engrossed bill as amended by House Amendment No. 1 with the following changes.

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.
