Missouri State Senate

Introduced

SB 243 - Current law requires children between the ages of seven and sixteen years to regularly attend public, private, parochial, or home school. Further, current law allows the St. Louis school district to raise their compulsory attendance age to seventeen under certain circumstances.

This act removes the aforementioned provision for the St. Louis school district and elevates the compulsory school attendance age for all children in Missouri to seventeen years of age.
