Senate Bill 2042: An Act Revising the Compulsory Attendance Law

Author:
Legislative Council

Summary:
One part of this bill would have required cancellation of a driver's license for anyone under 16 who violates the compulsory attendance law or the local school district attendance policies. HSLDA opposes any legislation tying school attendance to a driver's license. Additionally, local school districts should not have the authority to determine whether students are truant by writing new laws. The North Dakota Legislative Assembly has the duty and responsibility of creating new law.
