CA SB 1138

Title: Pupil attendance: excused absences: military entrance processing.
Author: Josh Newman

SB 1138, as amended, Newman. Pupil attendance: excused absences: military entrance processing. Existing law, notwithstanding the requirement that each person between 6 and 18 years of age who is not otherwise exempted is subject to compulsory full-time education, requires a pupil to be excused from school for specified types of absences, including, among others, an absence for purposes of spending time with a member of the pupil’s immediate family who is an active duty member of the uniformed services, and has been called to duty for, is on leave from, or has immediately returned from deployment to a combat zone or combat support position, as specified.This bill would add a pupil’s participation in military entrance processing to the list of excused absences. To the extent the bill would impose additional duties on school officials, the bill would impose a state-mandated local program.The California Constitution requires the state to reimburse local agencies and school districts for certain costs mandated by the state. Statutory provisions establish procedures for making that reimbursement.This bill would provide that, if the Commission on State Mandates determines that the bill contains costs mandated by the state, reimbursement for those costs shall be made pursuant to the statutory provisions noted above.

From committee: Do pass and re-refer to Com. on M. & V.A. with recommendation: To consent calendar. (Ayes 7. Noes 0.) (June 12). Re-referred to Com. on M. & V.A.
