Legislative Document 18: An Act to Extend the School Year
Sponsors:
Rep. Edgecomb
Summary:

This bill would increase the required days of school attendance per year from 175 to 177 for students who operate under the home instruction statute. Although it would not explicitly require all non-approved private schools (NAPS) to teach for 177 days as well, this would likely follow if this bill is enacted, since the current requirement that a NAPS provide 175 days of instruction originates in the same statutes modified by this bill.

This bill failed to pass, and is now dead.

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

1/6/2011 - Referred to Committee on Education and Cultural Affairs
