House Bill 621: Dropout Seminar Attendance Required
Sponsors:
Rep. Holsman
Summary:

This bill would require any student that is older than the compulsory attendance age limit for the district to attend a dropout prevention seminar before he or she drops out from high school. "Dropping out" is not defined; it is not known if a student leaving public school to attend a homeschool program would be considered to be dropping out. The dropout seminar would legally have to last at least four hours, and could not be held during regular school hours. Students who wished to drop out could be made to pay up to $45 for the cost of attending a dropout seminar.

HSLDA's Position:
Oppose.
Action Requested:
None at this time
Status:

2/22/2011 (House) Introduced and Read First Time
2/23/2011 (House) Read Second Time

This bill failed to pass before the session ended, and is now dead.
