SB 337 - This act asserts that any school district which allows an excused absence for athletics or any other extra- curricular activity shall allow any student to use regularly scheduled instructional time as is reasonably necessary for participation in an officially-sanctioned activity of any FFA, FHA, FCCLA and 4-H program.
