House Bill 369 is in play on the Capitol courts

The House Education Committee on Wednesday advanced a bill that would allow students who attend alternative schools to participate in public school activities, like sports.

HB369 also says a student removed from practice or a game for suspicion of a concussion cannot play again until cleared by a health care provider or person acting at the direction of a doctor.

The discussion Wednesday evening focused on the provision letting alternative school students in grades 9-12 participate in public school activities. Alternative schools include accredited home schools, the Alaska Military Youth Academy, charter schools and public vocational, remedia or theme-based programs.

The bill now goes to the House Finance Committee.
