Senate Bill 2161: Requiring Parents to Submit Children’s Identification Information

Judiciary Committee

This bill would repeal Section 54-23.2-04.2 of the North Dakota Century Code which describes the documentation that a homeschooling parent must submit to public school officials to establish the identity of a child. However, these same provisions would be codified in a new edition of the Code. So the net effect would be no change in the law.
