Bill Caption

Relating to determining appropriate disciplinary action to be taken against a public school student who is in foster care or who is homeless.

Fiscal Notes

No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.

Bill Analysis

SB 424 would require school districts to consider whether the student is homeless or in a conservatorship when considering suspension, removal to a disciplinary alternative education program, expulsion, or placement in a juvenile justice alternative education program. 

Vote Recommendation Notes

While this is probably a wise thing to take under consideration, the provisions of this bill do not appear to have a connection to our liberty principles and we remain neutral.
