HARRISBURG – A bill has been introduced aimed ensuring a child’s K-12 educational experience is not abruptly stopped or disrupted in any way in the event of a residency issue. Residency disputes between school districts can take weeks or more to be fully resolved. For students caught in the middle, they can be removed from the classroom by the district they’ve been attending. House Bill 458 seeks to provide protection for children in the event of a residency dispute. Under the bill, a school district would not be permitted to remove a child from school until the dispute has been fully resolved and it has been determined which school district should correctly enroll the child. The bill was referred to the House Education Committee.
