Senate Bill 291: Compulsory Attendance Age Expansion
Sen. Charlie Shields
This bill would, among other things, mandate that children are subject to compulsory attendance requirements until the age of 17 or until the child successfully completes 16 credits toward high school graduation. For the purposes of this requirement, a “credit” is 100 hours or more of instruction in a course. The previous compulsory attendance age in Missouri was 16.
