This bill would authorize local school boards to legislate the definition of what a "truant child" is and to establish enforcement policies and procedures as the law. There would be no limits on the exercise of this legislative authority except approval by the State Board of Education. This bill would result in different truancy laws throughout the state and practically no restriction on the authority of local school boards.
This bill should be opposed.
07/18/2012 (Senate) Referred to Committee on Education
