Parents Rights Legislation Goes to Governor for Signature

A popular “parent’s rights” bill was approved by the Idaho Senate on Monday, clearing the way for Gov. Brad Little to sign the measure into law.

Sponsored by Rep. Judy Boyle (R-Midvale) and Superintendent of Public Instruction Debbie Critchfield, House Bill 163 “reinforces the fundamental rights and responsibilities of parents or legal guardians as primary stakeholders to make decisions regarding the upbringing of their child.”

The bill expands the requirements of public schools when administering surveys of students, parental notification if their child is questioned by a school resource officer and grants reasonable access to observe all school activities during school hours in which the child is enrolled.
