submitted in accordance with Assembly Rule III, Sec 1(f)
 
BILL NUMBER: A4062
 
SPONSOR: Brook-Krasny
  TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to the participation of home-schooled pupils in certain school activities   PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL: The bill's purpose is to allow home schooled students to participate in driver's education and interscholas- tic athletic activities which are offered by the school within which district the student resides in.   SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS: This bill requires amendment of section 806a and section 3202-a of the education law. Section 1 adds a new subdivision 3 to section 806-a of the education law. Whenever driver's education is offered within a district, a child residing within the district but not attending the school at which the course is offered, will be allowed to participate in the source, provided the child meets the requirements and pays fees related, if there are any. Section 2 adds a new section 3202-a to the education law. Whenever a district offers an interscholastic athletic activity, a child residing within the district but not attending the school, will be allowed an opportunity to participate in such activity; provided, that the child is not a pupil at another school within such district. Section 3 sets forth the effective date.   JUSTIFICATION: The intention of this legislation is to amend the current education law, which requires the student's enrollment in the school district as a condition for participation in that school's inter- scholastic sports program, in order for home schooled students to be better integrated in society and societal activities through partic- ipation in public school's interscholastic extracurricular activities.   PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2013-2014: A5711- Referred to Education 2011-2012: A10485- Referred to Education   FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: Undetermined.   EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect on the one hundred twenti- eth day after it shall have become a law.
