PROHIBITED CONCEPTS COMPLAINT

Section 51 of Chapter 493 of the Public Acts of 2021, now codified at Tenn. Code Ann. § 49-6-1019, prohibits certain concepts from being included or promoted as part of a course of instruction or in a curriculum or instructional program or included in supplemental instructional materials used by public schools in Tennessee. The department promulgated emergency rule 0520-12-04, that became effective on November 8, 2021, and remains in effect through May 7, 2022, providing how the department will implement the new law. The emergency rule includes requirements for each local education agency (LEA) and the process for filing a complaint alleging an LEA has violated Tenn. Code Ann. § 49-6-1019. 

The emergency rule requires that complaints alleging concepts prohibited by Tenn. Code Ann. § 49-6-1019 are being or have been included or promoted in a course of instruction, curriculum, and instructional program, or in supplemental instructional materials of an LEA, must be filed with the LEA in which the allegation(s) arose on the Prohibited Concepts Complaint Form provided by the Tennessee Department of Education.

General complaints about the subject matter or age appropriateness of textbooks and instructional materials that do not allege that concepts are being or have been included or promoted in a course of instruction, curriculum, instructional program, or in supplemental instructional materials of an LEA in violation of Tenn. Code Ann. § 49-6-1019, must be filed with the LEA pursuant to the LEA's locally adopted policy for addressing such complaints.
