Parental Notification Bill Fails to Report Out of Subcommittee

Del. Kory’s HB 1548 was considered by the Public Education Subcommittee of the Senate Education and Health Committee earlier this week. The bill would require principals to notify the parents of a student who violates school board policy if the violation is "likely" to result in suspension or the filing of a compulsory attendance petition. Sen. Howell made a motion to report the bill out of the subcommittee but there was no second to that motion. The full Committee may still consider and act upon the bill.
