Bill Would Allow Tennessee Students to Opt Out of Activities
(2012-02-09)
(wkms) - Tennessee parents would be able to opt their children out of extracurricular school activities under a proposal advancing in the state House. The measure passed the House Education Subcommittee Wednesday on a voice vote. The companion bill is awaiting a vote in the Senate Education Committee. Under the legislation, schools would notify parents about the activities by way of student handbooks or policy guidebooks. Lawmakers say those parents who don't want their children to participate in a certain activity would be able to send a note to the school. © Copyright 2014, wkms
