Legislative Bill 1165: Change Provisions Relating to Truancy and Excessive Absenteeism
Sponsors:
Senator Tony Fulton and Senator Russ Karpisek
Summary:

This bill gives the school district authority to set its own policy for absenteeism and truancy. Currently, the school sets its policy in collaboration with the county attorney, which would no longer be the case under this new bill. It requires notice to be delivered to the parents from the school district when a trauncy investigation is opened, and it permits the school district to determine the course of action for handling a truancy investigation, including referral to the county attorney. Currently, referral to the county attorney is mandatory.
