Report to Governor & General Assembly due Dec. 1, 2007 (Chapter 449, Acts of 2006).

In July 2006, the Task Force to Study Raising the Compulsory Public School Attendance Age to 18 was authorized (Chapter 449, Acts of 2006).

The Task Force is to commence its work in November 2006, when it will consider the impact of extending the compulsory public school attendance to age eighteen. Through this process, it will gather and review data on extended learning opportunities for teens between the ages of 15 and 18; and examine the adequacy of facilities, staffs, programming, instructional time, and resources to accomodate such a change. The Task Force also will project the impact on student attendance and academic achievement, and assess the fiscal and social benefits to students and the State of raising the compulsory school attendance age.

Authorization for the Task Force expires December 31, 2007.
