Lawmakers propose truancy law reform to improve student attendance

from WCPO-TV

A child would no longer be suspended or expelled from school for repeatedly missing classes if a bill related to truancy law reform is passed. The bill would prohibit public schools from suspending or expelling a student "solely on the basis of unexcused absences." It also removes "excessive truancy" from a 1998 law that requires schools to adopt zero-tolerance policies for "violent, disruptive or inappropriate behavior, including excessive truancy." Matt Verber, a policy director for StudentsFirst Ohio, said the bill would not only keep students in school but also provide necessary interventions to determine why the student is skipping class. more
