LD 92: Impacts Sports Access for Recognized Private School Students
Sponsors:
Representative Maker
Summary:

As originally filed, LD 92 would have taken away the right of students in recognized private schools to participate in public school cocurricular, extracurricular and interscholastic activities. HSLDA and HOME spoke to the sponsor and asked her to amend it. As amended, the bill actually expands access for students in recognized private schools. (Many families homeschool their children through a recognized private school.) Now a public school can deny access only if the school does not have the capacity to allow the student to participate in the activity, or if the student’s own school offers the activity.

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

01/24/2013     (House)     Introduced, referred to House Education and Cultural Affairs Committee

07/22/2013     (Enacted)     Enacted, Public Law Chapter 428.
