Assembly Bill 2723: Requires School District to Permit Access by "Home-School Students" to Public School Extracurricular Activities; Introduces New Terminology
Sponsors:
Assemblyman Jay Webber
Summary:

This bill would require school districts to allow "home-schooled students" to participate in school-sponsored extracurricular activities in the student's resident district.

This bill is identical to S582.

HSLDA's Position:
Neutral.

HSLDA was initially opposed to this bill because it contains the undefined phrase "home-school student." This absence of a definition would have allowed a judge to impose his own definition, with possible harmful consequences to the homeschool community.

We are now neutral, however, because the sponsor has indicated he will move to remove the problematic language if the bill comes up in committee.

Action Requested:
None at this time
Status:

2/8/2016 Introduced, Referred to Assembly Education Committee
