    I move that Engrossed Senate Bill 327 be amended to read as follows:

SOURCE: Page 1, line 1; (07)MO032716.1. -->     Page 1, between the enacting clause and line 1, begin a new paragraph and insert:
SOURCE: IC 20-34-3-16.5; (07)MO032716.1. -->     "SECTION 1. IC 20-34-3-16.5 IS ADDED TO THE INDIANA CODE AS A NEW SECTION TO READ AS FOLLOWS [EFFECTIVE JULY 1, 2007]: Sec. 16.5. (a) As used in this section, "school" refers to the following:
        (1) A public school.
        (2) An accredited nonpublic school.
        (3) A charter school.
    (b) The term does not include a school that provides solely home based instruction.
    (c) Beginning in the 2008-2009 school year, every male child, before the child enters grade 12 at a school, shall be tested for the human papillomavirus (HPV) infection.
    (d) Each school shall notify each parent or legal guardian of a student who enrolls in grade 12 in the school of the requirement that the student must be tested and that the test is required for the student's continued enrollment, attendance, or residence at the school.

     (e) Each school shall require the parent or legal guardian of a student who has enrolled in the school to furnish, not later than the first day of school, a written statement of the student's test, accompanied by the physician's certificate or other documentation, unless a written statement of this nature is on file with the school.
    (f) The statement must show, except for a student to whom section 2 or 3 of this chapter applies, that the student has been tested as required in this section. The statement must include the student's date of birth and the date of the test.
    (g) A student may not be permitted to attend school beyond the first day of school without furnishing the written statement unless:
        (1) the school gives the parent of the student a waiver; or
        (2) the local health department or a physician determines that the student's test has been delayed due to extreme circumstances and that the required test will not be completed before the first day of school.
The waiver referred to in subdivision (1) may not be granted for a period that exceeds twenty (20) days. If subdivision (2) applies, the parent of the student shall furnish the written statement and a schedule, approved by a physician or the local health department, for the completion of the test.
    Renumber all SECTIONS consecutively.
