Senate Bill 2212: Lowering and Raising the Compulsory Attendance Statute
This bill would have lowered the compulsory attendance age for children starting school. Under current law, if a child becomes six by September 1, he must attend school. This bill would have changed the age to six by January 1, so that five-year-olds would have to begin school in the fall. This bill would also have changed the upper age for attendance so that instead of being 17 by September 1, the child would be to be 17 by January 1.
