House Bill 681: Tightens Attendance Requirements for Children age 5-7
Sponsors:
Representative Noel Torpey
Summary:

Currently, if a child over 5 but under 7 is enrolled in school, a parent may simply withdraw the child from school and be excused from attendance requirements if they submit written notice of their withdrawal. This bill would restrict this option by only allowing a child to be excused for a very short list of specific reasons, or by requiring the parent to attend a meeting with the school principal.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose.
Action Requested:
None at this time
Status:

02/20/2013     (House)     Introduced
03/07/2013     (House)     Referred to Elementary and Secondary Education Committee

This bill failed to pass before the session ended; it is now dead.
