Current Bill Summary

SB 134 - Under this act, no school district or charter school shall prohibit a parent or legal guardian of a student from audio recording any meeting held under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), or the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973.

Any audio recording make by a parent or legal guardian shall be the property of the parent or guardian, and shall not be considered to be a public record.

School districts and charter schools shall not require parents to notify the school district or charter school of such parent's intent to record a meeting more than 24 hours in advance.

No school district or charter school employee who reports any violation of this act shall be subject to discharge, retaliation, or any other adverse employment action for making such report.

This act is substantially similar to SB 1022 (2020) and HCS/HB 1540 (2020).
