Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Charter Schools Law of the School Code. Requires a charter school to comply with all applicable absenteeism and truancy policies and requirements applicable to public schools under the laws of the State of Illinois. Sets forth how a charter school must define a truant, chronic or habitual truant, truant minor, and dropout. Effective immediately.

 Fiscal Note (IL State Board of Education)
 HB 3199 will not likely have a significant fiscal impact to the State. The legislation will require charter schools to comply with truancy and absenteeism policies applicable to public schools in Illinois. Charter school students are countered in the Average Daily Attendance of the local school district when calculating the district's General State Aid entitlement, so to the extent that new truancy and absenteeism policies increase attendance at charter schools, this could increase the overall GSA claim to the State in an unknown amount. In addition, there may be an unknown cost to charter schools top adopt and comply with these policies.
