ISBE has temporarily suspended the Black History Curriculum Survey. ISBE will repost an updated version of the survey that more closely reflects the spirit and intention of the resolution and corresponding state statute to educate students about the perspectives and contributions of Black Americans throughout history.
Thank you for your patience.
HR 1098 (Ford) created the Black History Curriculum Task Force to conduct an audit of every Illinois school district's history curriculum from K-12 to review the following:
105 ILCS 5/27-20.4 outlines requirements for Black history instruction in Illinois schools.
The purpose of this survey is to gather the information required to include in a report to be transmitted to the General Assembly.
105 ILCS 5/27 specifically requires information on African slave trade, slavery in US, and vestiges of slavery.
Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. When you have answered all of the required questions, please click the "Submit" button.
