Current Bill Summary

SB 1274 - This act requires that all public school shower rooms, locker rooms, and restrooms accessible for use by minors under 18 years of age shall be designated for and used by male or female minors only. The act provides for the best available accommodations for any minor who asserts that his or her gender differs from his or her biological sex, provided that such minor's parent shall consent to such accommodations in writing. Such accommodations may include, but are not limited to, controlled use of faculty shower rooms, locker rooms, or restrooms, or access to single-stall and unisex restrooms.

A school district that violates any provision of the act shall be ineligible to receive state aid and shall be classified as unaccredited until the district proves to the satisfaction of the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education that it is no longer in violation of the act.

This act is identical to a provision in SCS/SB 728 (2024) and is similar to SB 974 (2024), HB 2355 (2024), HB 2357 (2024), a provision in SB 165 (2023), SB 690 (2018), SCS/SB 98 (2017), and SB 720 (2016).
