Bill Summary

Out-of-home placement students - recognition of academic credits earned by students in the custody of the division of youth services. Under current law, when a student in out-of-home placement transfers from one school to another school, the sending school must certify to the receiving school or school district the course work that the student has fully or partially completed while enrolled at the school. The receiving school or school district must accept the student's certified course work and the course work certified by previous schools in which the student was enrolled, as reflected in the student's records, as if it had been completed at the receiving school. The receiving school or school district must apply all of the student's certified course work toward completion of the student's requirements for graduating from the grade level in which the student is enrolled at the receiving school or school district or for graduation from the receiving school or school district if the student is enrolled in 12th grade.

The act requires receiving schools and school districts to follow the same procedures for a student who transfers to a school or school district from a division of youth services placement.
