House of Representatives
Session of 2017 - 2018 Regular Session


Posted: March 31, 2017 12:34 PM
From: Representative Maureen E. Madden
To: All House members
Subject: Transfer of School Records
In the near future I will be introducing legislation that requires timely transfer of student records to another public school entity, including charter schools, or a nonpublic school. This would protect students and their families regardless of their choice of school.

It is imperative that a student be provided with continuity of their education program and, for a school entity to evaluate the students’ needs and place them in the appropriate academic programs, a complete and accurate record of their academic and attendance records are necessary.

My bill would ensure that a student’s records are transferred within 10 days from a request of a receiving school, and any unexcused absences would follow the student to the new school for monitoring and follow-up if necessary.

Please join me in co-sponsoring this legislation.

Introduced as HB1205
