House Bill 665: Ending Written Notice to Parents Regarding Truancy
Sponsors:
Rep. Thad McClammy
Summary:

This bill would delete the provision of state law which requires an attendance officer to give three days' written notice to parents before commencing a criminal prosecution for truancy. This would mean that parents would be prosecuted without any warning whatsoever. Current law provides parents an opportunity to remedy an attendance problem without going to court.

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

3/03/2010     (House)     Read for the first time and referred to the House Committee on Education Policy
4/13/2010     (House)     Read for the second time and placed on the calendar
4/14/2010     (House)     Indefinitely postponed
4/22/2010     (House)     Bill died when legislature adjourned
