SB 955 – Amends Existing Law To Allows Middle And High School Students With One Excused Absence Per School Year To Engage In A Civil Or Political Event
Existing law requires a pupil to be excused from school for specified absences.
This bill amends existing law to include that a middle or high school pupil engaging in a civil or political event has an excused absence so long as the pupil provides the school advance notice of their absence. The bill requires the school to excuse the pupil for only one school day-long absence per school year. The bill provides the school administrator with the discretion to excuse the pupil for additional excused absences.
(SB 955 amend Section 48205 of the Education Code.)
