that Senate Bill 191 be amended to read as follows:
Page 2, between lines 30 and 31, begin a new line double
block indented and insert:
" (J) In instances where students have left the school, are not included in (A) through (I) above and their location is unknown to the school, the principal shall send a certified letter to the last known address of the student. If the certified letter fails to locate the student or if no response is received, the principal may submit the student's information including last known address, parent or guardian name, student testing number and other pertinent data to the State Attendance Officer. The State Attendance Officer, using all available state data and any other means available, shall attempt to locate the student and report the student's location and school enrollment status to the principal so that the principal can appropriately send student records to the new school or otherwise document the student's status.".
