SB18-213: Transfer Academic Credits For Division Of Youth Services Youths

Student and Youth Rights
Bill Number: SB18-213
Year: 2018
ACLU Position: Support
Sponsors: B. Martinez Humenik /L. Herod (D)

Description:

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 twelfth grade.
The bill 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.
