Synopsis As Introduced Amends the School Code. Requires all children in the third and seventh grades of any public, private, or parochial school to have a scoliosis screening. Provides that each of these children shall present proof of having been examined by a chiropractor before May 15th of the school year. Provides that the Department of Public Health shall establish, by rule, a waiver for children who show an undue burden or a lack of access to a chiropractor. Requires each public, private, and parochial school to give notice of this scoliosis screening requirement to the parents and guardians of students at least 60 days before May 15th of each school year. Effective July 1, 2009.
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Amends the Safe Schools Law of the School Code. Provides that a "disruptive student" includes suspension or expulsion eligible students and students against whom juvenile or criminal proceedings alleging the commission of a forcible felony are pending (instead of just suspension or expulsion eligible students). Provides that a student against whom juvenile or criminal proceedings alleging the commission of a forcible felony are pending may be immediately transferred to an alternative program. Provides that the amendatory language does not apply to a student in the Chicago school district. Effective immediately.
