Synopsis As Introduced Amends the Compulsory Attendance Article of the School Code. Provides that any person having custody or control of a child subject to the Article to whom notice has been given of the child's truancy and who knowingly and willfully permits such a child to persist in his or her truancy within that school year must complete a parent education course or undergo family counseling upon a finding by the school board of a violation (instead of providing that the person is guilty of a Class C misdemeanor and is subject to not more than 30 days imprisonment or a fine of up to $500 or both upon conviction thereof). Makes related changes.
House Floor Amendment No. 1 Provides that any person having custody or control of a child to whom notice has been given of the child's truancy and who knowingly and willfully permits the child to persist in his or her truancy within a school year may (rather than must) be required, upon a finding by the school board of a violation of the truancy provisions, to complete a parent education course, undergo family counseling, or engage in another support service as agreed upon by the person having custody or control of the child and the school board (rather than just complete a parent education course or undergo family counseling).
