The procedure shall include:
        (1) Consideration of the time frame for providing

    (b) The governing body of each school district, charter school, or nonpublic school shall implement a procedure under which notice is provided to the parents or guardians of a student, subject to subsection (a), when any formal action has been taken by the governing body relating to the employment of the alleged perpetrator following the investigation of sexual misconduct, including whether employment was terminated or whether the governing body accepted the resignation of the employee. Notice provided to the parents or guardians of a student with a disability must not conflict with the student's individualized education plan or a Section 504 plan under the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the requirements of applicable State or federal law. The procedure shall include:
        (1) Consideration of the time frame for providing
    
notice to the student and the student's parents or guardians if the alleged sexual misconduct is also being investigated by the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services or law enforcement as described in Section 22-85 of this Code.
