Summary as introduced:
Compulsory school attendance, truancy and chronic tardiness. Incorporates the concept of chronic tardiness into the reporting, recordkeeping, and enforcement provisions of the compulsory school attendance law and other enforcement provisions relating to the welfare of children, including the law relating to juvenile and domestic courts and the parental responsibility law relating to public education and discipline. This bill requires the Board of Education to promulgate regulations defining "chronically tardy" to identify those children who are in violation of compulsory school attendance by reason of being habitually and without justification absent from school for a significant portion of the day because of routine and substantial late arrival to school.
