    1-1                                AN ACT
    1-2  relating to requiring certain students to attend school as a
    1-3  condition of probation.
    1-5        SECTION 1.  Section 21.3011(j), Education Code, is amended to
    1-6  read as follows:
    1-7        (j)  A <If a> court may not order <orders> a student who has
    1-8  been expelled to attend school as a condition of probation until
    1-9  the earlier of:
   1-10              (1)  the date the period of expulsion ends; or
   1-11              (2)  the beginning of:
   1-12                    (A)  the semester following the semester in which
   1-13  the student was expelled, if the student was expelled before the
   1-14  final six-week reporting period of a semester; or
   1-15                    (B)  the second semester following the semester
   1-16  in which the student was expelled, if the student was expelled
   1-17  during the final six-week reporting period of a semester <, the
   1-18  school district shall readmit the student, but the student is not
   1-19  immune from suspension, removal to an alternative education
   1-20  program, or expulsion during the term of the probation.  If a
   1-21  student is expelled under this section, the school district retains
   1-22  the authority to place the student in the appropriate educational
   1-23  setting>.
   1-24        SECTION 2.  This Act applies beginning with the 1995-1996
    2-1  school year.
    2-2        SECTION 3.  The importance of this legislation and the
    2-3  crowded condition of the calendars in both houses create an
    2-4  emergency and an imperative public necessity that the
    2-5  constitutional rule requiring bills to be read on three several
    2-6  days in each house be suspended, and this rule is hereby suspended,
    2-7  and that this Act take effect and be in force from and after its
    2-8  passage, and it is so enacted.
