Short description: 
SCH CD-TRUANT-KINDERGARTEN                                                 

Synopsis of Bill as introduced:
        Amends the School Code and the Juvenile Court Act of  1987.   For      
   the  2000-2001 school year and each school year thereafter, requires a      
   person having custody or  control  of  a  child  who  is  enrolled  in      
   kindergarten  to  cause  the  child  to  attend school.  Prohibits any      
   person having  custody  or  control  of  a  child  from  circumventing      
   attendance  requirements  by removing the child from enrollment in the      
   school district.  For the 2000-2001 school year and each  school  year      
   thereafter,  changes  which  children  may be defined as a "truant" or      
   "chronic or habitual truant" to a child  enrolled  in  any  of  grades      
   kindergarten  through 12 whose attendance is required under the School      
   Code, except a child who is 16 years of age or  older  (instead  of  a      
   child  subject  to  compulsory  school  attendance).  Includes a child      
   enrolled in kindergarten in the  definition  of  "dropout".   Provides      
   that  a  minor  below  the  compulsory  school  age  and  enrolled  in      
   kindergarten  or  first  grade shall not be adjudged a truant minor in      
   need of supervision.  Effective immediately.                                
          FISCAL NOTE (State Board of Education)                               
          HB 3107 will have no fiscal impact at the State level; it will       
          result in some savings to local districts by mandating atten-        
          dance by enrolled students.                                          
          STATE MANDATES NOTE (State Board of Education)                       
          Same as SBE fiscal note.                                             
          FISCAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)                              
          There would be no corrections population or fiscal impact.           
          CORRECTIONAL NOTE (Department of Corrections)                        
          Same as DOC fiscal note.
