“The focus is to ensure that parents are empowered to be involved in their child’s education both inside and outside the classroom,” Swearingen said. “In Ohio, we value parents taking an active role in their child’s life. When parents are involved, their children succeed. When children succeed, the future of Ohio becomes brighter.”
The legislation will do the following:
· Require schools to draft a policy that promotes parental involvement in their child’s education and honor that policy.
· Notify a parent of a change in their student’s services or monitoring related to the student’s mental, emotional, or physical health or well-being.
