Lost or Damaged Instructional Materials

Senate Bill 1248 includes:

Money collected for lost or damaged books: enforcement. – The school principal shall collect from each student or the student’s parent the purchase price of any instructional material the student has lost, destroyed, or unnecessarily damaged and to report and transmit the money collected to the district school superintendent."

This change allows principals to collect the entire purchase price of the instructional materials.
