Senate Bill 374: Requires Homeschooled Children Ages 12, 14, and 17 to Receive a Behavioral Health Assessment
Sponsors:
Senator Toni Nathaniel Harp and Representative Toni E. Walker
Summary:

This proposed bill would require homeschooled children ages 12, 14, and 17 to have a "behavioral health assessment." The health care provider performing the assessment would be required to complete a form designed by the State Board of Education verifying that the assessment had been completed.

HSLDA's Position:

This assessment would constitute an unwarranted, gross invasion of family privacy. This bill should be opposed.

Action Requested:
None at this time
Status:

Died in committee. See "Bill History" link below.
