Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Compulsory Attendance Article of the School Code. In a Section concerning enrolled pupils not of compulsory school age, removes provisions that allow a school or school district to deny enrollment to a student 17 years of age or older for one semester for failure to meet minimum academic standards if certain conditions are met, and provides that no child may be denied reenrollment (instead of enrollment or reenrollment) under the Section in violation of the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act or the Americans with Disabilities Act. Prohibits punitive action from being taken against truant minors (rather than chronic truants) for such truancy unless available supportive services and other school resources have been provided to the student. Provides that a truant minor may not be expelled for nonattendance unless he or she has accrued 15 consecutive days of absences without valid cause and the student cannot be located by the school district or the school district has located the student but cannot, after exhausting all available support services, compel the student to return to school. Effective July 1, 2017.
