Alabama Governor signed a new bill, “The Parental Right to know Bill

“I have signed SB48 — the parental right to know bill — into law.” Stated Governor Kay Ivey.

Parents’ involvement is critical in a student’s education. I am proud to sign this commonsense legislation by Pro Tem Reed to ensure our parents know what is being taught in our schools, she goes on to say.

The SB48 would require each public PreK – 12 school to post the curriculum for each class on the website of the school and would permit parents or guardians of the enrolled students to examine instructional and supplemental materials used in the classroom upon request.
