Starting July 1, 2023, a new law took effect for schools, called Faith's Law. This law is focused on prevention of sexual misconduct by school employees, or those working in the school on behalf of the school district.

ISBE has developed and maintains the Faith's Law Resource Guide that includes guidance for students, parents/guardians, and teachers about sexual abuse responses and prevention resources available in their community, including contact information of entities that provide services for victims of child sexual abuse and their families.
