SB1001 by Watson ( relating to the suspension of a student who is homeless from public school.), Committee Report 1st House, Substituted
No significant fiscal implication to the State is anticipated.
The bill would prohibit school officials from placing a homeless student in out-of-school suspension.
It is assumed that the requirements of the bill could be absorbed using existing resources.
Local Government Impact
To the extent that school districts and charter schools are required to provide disciplinary alternatives to homeless students who otherwise would have been subject to out-of-school suspension, some school districts and charter schools could see some increased costs.
