House Bill 821: Requires Children be Enrolled in School or Home Study Within 15 Days of Establishing New Residence
Sponsors:
Representatives Mary Oliver, Rahn Mayo, Billy Mitchell, Margaret Kaiser, Kathy Ashe, Pedro "Pete" Marin
Summary:

This bill would require that children who are new residents of a school district be enrolled in school or a home study program within 15 days of such new residency or the start date of school if the new residency occurs prior to such start date. This proposed change to Section 20-2-690.1 of the Georgia Code would contradict the law in Section 20-2-690, which only requires that the declaration of intent be filed within 30 days of establishing a home study program and permits homeschoolers to choose their own 12-month school year.

This bill should be opposed.
