Bill Title: Reinserts the provisions of the engrossed bill with the following changes. With regard to a student who is a victim of gender-based violence and who seeks transfer to another school, provides that the school district the student transfers to must be an adjoining school district, unless there is no attendance center, school facility, or school location in that district in which the student's attendance poses no risk to the student's mental or physical well-being or safety. Provides that the school district the student seeks to transfer to may deny a transfer to a particular attendance center if (i) the attendance center exceeds or, as a result of the transfer, would exceed its attendance capacity, (ii) the student does not meet the attendance center's academic criteria for enrollment, or (iii) the transfer would prevent the school district from meeting obligations under State or federal law, a court order, or a consent decree. Provides that if no adjoining school district is available for transfer, the student may transfer to another school district, unless there is no attendance center, school facility, or school location in that district in which the student's attendance poses no risk to the student's mental or physical well-being or safety. With regard to the Children and Youth Who Are Parents, Expectant Parents, or Victims of Gender-Based Violence Article, defines "sexual activity" and modifies other definitions. Changes the membership of the Ensuring Success in School working group and requires the members to serve for a term of 2 years, which may be extended for a second term. Requires the working group to incorporate the advice and recommendations of youth who are parents, expectant parents, and victims of gender-based violence into the working group's advice to the State Board of Education on the implementation, monitoring, and evaluation of the Article. Requires complaint resolution procedures to be adopted by each school district by January 1, 2021 (rather than July 1, 2020) and adds a complaint of a violation of the Article as part of the procedure; makes conforming changes. Makes other changes. Effective immediately.
