SB 500 – This act requires each school district to adopt policies for annually notifying parents or legal guardians of students of school-sponsored clubs and extracurricular activities and allowing them an opportunity to withhold permission for their child to participate. The annual notification must include a description of the club or activity, the name of the club's faculty advisor, and a description of past or planned activities. The school district may use the student handbook for such notification. Beginning with the 2009-2010 school year, students must receive written permission from their parents or legal guardians to participate in school-sponsored clubs and extracurricular activities.
This act is identical to HB 35 (2007).
