HB 242 (2021)

Revise the definition of an "adequate education"


Makes various changes to the requirements of providing an opportunity for an adequate education. Generally speaking, the bill focuses on the inputs and elements of education rather than the student outcomes. The bill narrowly defines the base cost for an adequate education, for example excluding sports and extra-curricular activities. As passed by the House, the bill also requires high schools to grant credit for completing "a state board approved alternative program."
