SB 272 (2023)

Establish a parental bill of rights in education, including info about gender identity


Establishes a parental bill of rights in education. Some of the parental rights in this bill include:
"The right to access and review all medical records of a child maintained by a school or school personnel"
"The right to inquire of the school or school personnel and to be truthfully and completely informed if the child is being identified or referred to by school district staff, as being of a gender other than that of which the child was identified or referred when enrolled"
"The right to know what extracurricular activities, clubs, or organizations their child is participating in"

These are just a sample of the rights included in the bill.

There is an exception if school personnel "have an actual and objectively reasonable belief, supported by clear and convincing evidence" that sharing information with the parent would result in the student being abused or neglected.

Parents could sue schools under the law.
