House Bill 594: Increasing School Attendance Rates
Representatives Botzow, Endres, Barnard, Clark, Cross, Donaghy, Jerman, Klein, LaVoie, Livingston, Mook, Morrissey, and Potter.
This bill would provide monetary incentives to school districts that increase their attendance rates by a specified percentage. It also provides that a child's failure to attend school for 20 or more days while not excused or exempted shall constitute reasonable cause to believe that the child is abused or neglected.

None at this time. HSLDA has been assured that this bill is not going to pass.
This bill should be opposed. A child who is learning is not "neglected." This bill would treat paperwork neglect as if it were actual child neglect.
