CHARLESTON, WV (LOOTPRESS) – The House Education Committee met Tuesday and advanced three bills.
House Bill 2702 would require all public high school students to complete and submit a FAFSA document before graduation. To not submit a FAFSA, a waiver can be signed by the principal. The bill was amended to state that students who would not legally qualify for federal aid will not be required to complete FAFSA.
House Bill 2345 would require each county school board to employ at least one full-time school nurse.
House Bill 2785 provides for compulsory school attendance. It provides that the parent decides to remove a child from kindergarten. It also requires students must be enrolled in the same grade when transferring from another state.
