The companion bill is awaiting a vote in the Senate Education Committee.&nbsp; Under the legislation, schools would notify parents about the activities by way of student handbooks or policy guidebooks. Lawmakers say those parents who don&#39;t want their children to participate in a certain activity would be able to send a note to the school.</p> Thu, 09 Feb 2012 20:40:56 +0000 Gary Pitts 16855 at http://wkms.org
