ANALYSIS: This bill provides that an alternative learning plan for a child 16 years of age or older may be submitted to the child’s parent for approval. The bill also requires that a truant officer obtain a warrant or permission of a parent to return a child to school who is not complying with compulsory school attendance laws.
DNHPE Comment: Another attempt to dilute compulsory attendance requirements. Here's a comment from ParentalRights that says it pretty clearly.
2012-H-2429-R title: including parents in the approval process for alternative learning plans and requiring a truant officer to obtain a warrant or permission of a parent prior to returning a child to school.
