Clark County School District issued the following information regarding SB 269 for us to pass along to all Boulder City High School students and their parents:
Senate Bill 269 takes effect on January 1, 2015. This Bill established new school attendance requirements for application of a learner’s permit or driver’s license and requires imposing administrative sanctions on students with poor attendance.
As of January 1st, all students under the age of 18 who wish to apply for a learner’s permit or driver’s license must submit a completed DMV-301 form to the DMV office at the time of application. The DMV-301 requires a school official’s signature verifying the applicant has attended at least 90% of the school days in the current semester.
Students who do not meet the 90% attendance standard in the current semester will be unable to apply until the next semester, provided they have met the 90% standard during that semester.
Students who have three or more unapproved absences may be deemed a habitual truant, issued a truancy citation, and suffer a suspension of their driver’s license for thirty days for the first offense and sixty days for the second offense.
Students who do not have a valid driver’s license will not be eligible to apply for a learner’s permit or a driver’s license, once they become eligible to apply, for thirty days for the first offense and sixty days for the second offense.
Students, who turn 18 during the suspension, will be required to complete the terms of the suspension before becoming eligible to apply for a learner’s permit or driver’s license.
