Summary of Assessment
The bill specifies sanctions that a school district may impose if a student fails to return or replace a textbook lent to the student by the school district. The bill is effective upon signature of the Governor.
The bill establishes a power rather than a duty for local boards of education. No requirements are placed on either the Department of Education or local school districts. Therefore, the bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact.
