Senate Bill 345: An Act Concerning Child in Need of Assistance - Habitual Truancy
Senators Gladden, Brochin, Conway, Frosh, Giannetti, Grosfeld, Jones, and Klausmeier
SB 345 changes the classification of truant children from "children in need of supervision" to "children in need of assistance." This essentially creates educational neglect in Maryland and makes it easy for all the children in the family to come under court jurisdiction if one child is truant.
