Senate Bill 664 allows for a parent or guardian to elect NO LATER than July 15, 2021, to have a child under the age of 18 to repeat a grade level to make up for any lost educational opportunities due to COVID-19 regardless whether the child met the requirements to be promoted to the next grade level. A child at or over the age of 18 may elect, no later than July 15, 2021, to repeat a grade level to make up for any lost educational opportunities due to COVID-19. This election will include participation in academic or extracurricular activities, including interscholastic athletics. However, it will NOT ALLOW a child to have more years of ELIGIBILITY to participate in interscholastic athletics than they would have had despite the choice provided under this legislation.
