Look for List of Sleeper Laws Next Week That will Affect Schools

By Denise Dittrich, MSBA Associate Director of Government Relations

July 1 is an important date in the legislative calendar because it marks when many of the bills passed during the previous legislative session take effect. You may have read our blog entry, New Laws of 2014, posted on June 25. If you have not, please click here to access that blog entry.

Most of those new laws are familiar and well circulated at the end of session through legislative updates or the media. However, there are a few new laws that we like to call “sleepers” — laws that are less reported, but do affect the public and our public schools.

Over the next few weeks this blog will be dedicated to highlighting (one new law per blog) a new law affecting school districts (directly or indirectly) that you may not be aware as of yet. We’ll get started with “sleeper law No. 1” following the Fourth of July weekend.
