House Bill 388: Repeals Three-Day Written Notice of Filing Truancy Charges
Sponsors:
Representative Thad McClammy
Summary:

State law now requires an attendance officer to give three days’ written notice to parents before truancy charges are filed against the family. This gives the parents time to remedy any noncompliance with the compulsory attendance law. This bill would delete the three-day notice provision from the law, so that truancy charges may be filed immediately.

HSLDA's Position:

This bill should be opposed.

Action Requested:
