Minnesota H.F. No. 33

H.F. No. 33 amends Minnesota State Code Article 5, Sec. 2. [121A.425], to provide “full and equitable participation in preschool and prekindergarten.” This section prohibits the use of disciplinary dismissals for preschool and prekindergarten age children in any early childhood education, voluntary prekindergarten, or other school-based program. The law permits exclusion when non-exclusionary measures have been exhausted, and only in circumstances where there is an ongoing serious safety threat to the child or others.
