Bill Caption

Relating to inclusion of mental health concerns in existing state and local coordinated school health efforts.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated. No significant fiscal implication to units of local government is anticipated. There could be administrative costs to school districts to implement SHAC recommendations related to professional development, policies, and curriculum.

Bill Analysis

Summary: SB 1352 would elevate mental health as a priority in a student's curriculum. This legislation would include requiring the local school health advisory to include policies, procedures, and strategies on mental health concerns as part of its current duties.

Analysis: SB 1352 would expand the scope of government by requiring school districts to take on greater responsibility for student mental health. We oppose SB 1352.
