House Bill 86: Compulsory School Attendance
Sponsors:
Representatives Kroeker and Teeters; Senator Dockstader
Summary:

Last year former Representative Debra Hammons introduced a bill, which became law, requiring parents of children under 18 to meet with school district personnel regarding their education plan prior to withdrawal from school attendance. Because of potential confusion, this law requires clarification so that it only applies to public school students.

HB 86 will provide this necessary clarification to prevent school officials from applying this section of the law to homeschool or private school students.
