OSSE proposed regs on attendance

In the August 7 edition of the DCR, OSSE issued proposed rules regarding school attendance and reporting requirements for education institutions.   The proposed rule creates a new chapter A21 in Title 5 of the DCMR entitled "Compulsory Education and School Attendance."

The proposed rules will also include a provision about truancy.   The truancy provision, however, is not included in the August 7 proposal; that proposal was published in the November 14, 2008 DCR.

OSSE will not take action on the proposed rules before September 7, 2009; comments from the public are due within 30 days of publication.
