Bill Caption

Relating to a notification requirement if a public school campus or open-enrollment charter school does not have a nurse assigned to the campus during all instructional hours.

Fiscal Notes

No fiscal implication to the State is anticipated. Districts could curb some expenses by providing the required notices with other information required at the beginning of the school year. If the nurse vacancy occurred after the start of the year, districts would have to distribute notices within 30 instructional days of the first date that the nurse was no longer available. Administrative costs for schools would not be significant if they elected to post the required notice on their websites.

Bill Analysis

Summary: If a full-time nurse is not present after more than 30 consecutive instructional days, SB 418 would require a public school and open-enrollment charter school to notify the students' parents.

Analysis: This legislation neither uplifts nor offends our liberty principles. We are neutral.
