New law makes schools notify parents of absent students

Local News

COLUMBUS, Ohio (WDTN) – A new Ohio law took effect Friday.

It requires schools to notify parent within the first two hours of a school day if their child is absent from class without an excuse.

The law was enacted after the death of 14-year-old Alianna DeFreeze. She was kidnapped and killed in Cleveland in 2017.

Notifying procedures will vary from district to district.
