SENATE, No. 2210
STATE OF NEW JERSEY
INTRODUCED JUNE 19, 1997
By Senators MATHEUSSEN and EWING
An Act concerning summer sessions provided by boards of education and supplementing Title 18A of the New Jersey Statutes.
Be It Enacted by the Senate and General Assembly of the State of New Jersey:
1. Notwithstanding any law to the contrary, a board of education may charge tuition for any remedial course provided to a student who has been repeatedly suspended during the school year, as determined by the Commissioner of Education.
For the purposes of this section, remedial course means a course or subject which is a review of a course or subject previously taken, for which credits or placement may be awarded upon successful completion of the course.
2. This act shall take effect immediately.
This bill would permit school districts to charge tuition for those students who attend a summer session operated by the board of education for a remedial course, if the attendance is due to repeated suspensions. The Commissioner of Education will determine how many suspensions will be required in order to permit a district to charge tuition for attendance at a summer session.
The bill defines "remedial course" as it is defined at N.J.A.C.6:8-8.1.
Permits school districts to charge tuition for certain summer session courses.
