HB17-1146 - Parents' Rights Related To Minors

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning parents' rights for children.

The bill allows qualified, per school district policy, employees to dispense over-the-counter medications to a student if the student's parent or legal guardian provided the school district with written general authorization to dispense such over-the-counter medications during a specified academic year. The bill grants criminal and civil immunity to such school employees if they acted with written authorization from the student's parent or legal guardian. The same authority and immunity is granted to child care providers, including employees or relatives in nonlicensed facilities, provided the person dispensing the over-the-counter medication has written general authority for a specific time period from the child's parent or legal guardian.

The bill allows a parent or legal guardian to opt out of the collection and storage by a local education provider of any type of data related to his or her child.
