Public Act 101-0531 created the Make Sexual and Severe Physical Abuse Fully Extinct (Make S.A.F.E.) Task Force to address issues concerning the sexual abuse of students in school-related settings.
The task force is required to review the best practices for preventing the sexual abuse of students in a school-related setting or by school-related perpetrators, including school district employees or other students, how to best address that abuse, and the proper support for students who have suffered from that abuse. The review must examine the best practices at all schools maintaining prekindergarten through grade 12, regardless of whether the school is a public school, nonpublic school, or charter school. On or before September 15, 2020, the task force must report the findings of its review to the Governor and the General Assembly.
