Bill Sponsorship: Student Non-Discrimination Act
Source: HR.998&S.555
    Student Non-Discrimination Act of 2011:
  • Prohibits public school students from being excluded from participating in, or subject to discrimination under, any federally-assisted educational program on the basis of their actual or perceived sexual orientation or gender identity or that of their associates.
  • Considers harassment to be a form of discrimination.
  • Prohibits retaliation against anyone for opposing conduct they reasonably believe to be unlawful under this Act.
  • Authorizes federal departments and agencies to enforce these prohibitions by cutting off the educational assistance of recipients found to be violating them.
  • Allows an aggrieved individual to assert a violation of this Act in a judicial proceeding and recover reasonable attorney's fees should they prevail.
  • Deems a state's receipt of federal educational assistance for a program to constitute a waiver of sovereign immunity for conduct prohibited under this Act regarding such program.
