Bill Summary

The bill creates definitions of a student 'threat assessment' and a student 'suicide assessment'. The bill requires that when a student transfers to a new public school, including a charter or pilot school (public school), if the student's file contains a threat or suicide assessment and if the new public school, or a person acting on behalf of the student, requests copies of the student's records, the previous public school, or out-of-home placement if applicable, is required to transfer the student's threat or suicide assessment to his or her new public school with the other records requested. If a request for records is not made, the previous public school is not required to independently transfer the threat or suicide assessment. Current law allows for the transfer of threat or suicide assessments, but it does not require it.
(Note: This summary applies to this bill as introduced.)
