Indiana Bill Looking To Require Schools To Contact Parents Of Students Who Make Gender Identity Changes
Wednesday, January 25, 2023
INDIANAPOLIS – A bill introduced at the Indiana Statehouse is looking to require schools to notify parents if a student asks to change their gender identity
The proposal appears on the last page of Senate Bill 354 , a school accreditation bill.
Under the bill, teachers and other school employees would be required to notify parents if their child has requested a change in gender identity. This would include their name and pronouns.
Under the proposed measure, if the student tells any school employee about this kind of change or questions their gender identity, the school would be required to inform the child’s parent within 5 business days.
The bill needs to receive a committee hearing in order to advance. As of earlier this week, a hearing on the bill has not been scheduled.
