House Panel OKs Bill to Notify Arkansas Schools of Juvenile Offenders

JANUARY 16, 2007 - Posted at 3:56 p.m. CST

 

LITTLE ROCK, AR - A House panel today endorsed legislation requiring courts to notify schools when students have juvenile offenses restricting contact with other students.

The House Education Committee recommended passage of the proposal by Representative Shirley Walters, a Greenwood Republican.  The measure would require that a copy of a court order restricting supervised contact with other juveniles be sent to the school.

Walters says the bill is aimed at notifying school officials when a student has been charged with a sex crime.  State law currently requires that parents of a student notify the school as part of a court-ordered safety plan.  Walters says schools aren't getting that notification.
