Bill Caption

Relating to a public school student's transition from an alternative education program to a regular classroom.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

HB 2184 would require school districts to create a transition plan for students transferring from an alternative education program, such as a juvenile justice education program. The alternate education program administrator would be required to give notice of a student's release to the student's parent and provide the campus administrator with notice, an assessment of the student's academic growth, and the results of any tests administered to the student. The school administrator would also be required to coordinate with campus counselors, safety officers, teachers, social workers, and other relevant personnel to create a transition plan within five days after the student's release from an alternative program.
