Summary as passed: (all summaries)
Admission of certain persons to the public schools. Ensures that students whose parents are deployed outside the United States will continue to be admitted to public schools in the Commonwealth without tuition. This bill provides for admission to the public schools of any person living with an individual who is defined as a parent, not solely for school purposes, pursuant to a special power of attorney executed by a custodial parent as provided in federal law while the custodial parent is deployed outside the United States as a member of the Virginia National Guard or as a member of the United States Armed Forces. The bill also assures that the student will not be charged tuition because of being placed in the care of a noncustodial parent or other person standing in loco parentis who lives in a jurisdiction other than that of the custodial parent and that the student will, when practicable, have the option to continue to attend the school in which he was enrolled while residing with his custodial parent. This bill addresses the residency issues created when a custodial parent, who is a resident of Virginia and a member of the Virginia National Guard or the United States Armed Forces, receives orders to report for active duty and deployment abroad and the child must, out of necessity, live with the noncustodial parent or another individual in a different school division. A technical amendment to 22.1-270 aligns a cross reference to the amendments in the bill.
