SENATOR HUGGINS asked how they relate to sexual abuse and STD's.                                                                
                                                                                                                                
MS. HOBBS said drugs and alcohol do relate to these issues.

PAULA TERREL,  representing herself,  testified in  opposition to                                                               
SB 89. She commented on limiting  testimony to one minute on such                                                               
an  important  topic.   She  said  she  finds  the   bill  to  be                                                               
prohibitive; it puts a clamp  on school districts. She maintained                                                               
that schools are  open to parents who wish their  children to opt                                                               
out  of programs.  She read  Fairbanks' opt  out policy  and said                                                               
that is  the way  it should  be, not to  have to  have permission

In  response to  a question  from Senator  Gardner regarding  the

that Planned Parenthood can be  invited into the schools and they                                                               
strive for and are vetted for medical accuracy.

SB  89. She  stated  that  everyone knows  that  schools have  an

is  appropriate  for  schools to  decide  that  certain  mandates

LYNN ESCOLA, representing herself,  testified in opposition to SB
89, as amended.  She said that the bill is  an attempt to destroy

MS. DAML said yes, but if  the trip is related to the curriculum,                                                               
permission slips  are not  required, but it  is good  practice to

LISA   EGAN  LAGERQUIST,   representing  herself,   testified  in                                                               
opposition  to  SB 89.  She  understood  that Amendment  2  would

instruction  on sexually  transmitted diseases  and sexuality  in                                                               
public  schools. She  spoke of  an  excellent Planned  Parenthood                                                               
workshop on sexuality  for parents. She concluded  that she wants                                                               
to have the program in her kids' school for other parents.

REPRESENTATIVE   LAURA   REINBOLD,  Alaska   State   Legislature,                                                               
testified in support  of SB 89. She said  parental involvement is                                                               
the key  to student success. She  said parents should be  able to                                                               
opt out of  programs like Planned Parenthood. She  spoke in favor

MIKE  HANLEY,  Commissioner,  Department  of  Health  and  Social                                                               
Services  (DHSS),  testified  on  SB  89.  He  said  the  opt-out                                                               
language  is problematic  for school  districts because  they are                                                               
required  to provide  state  assessments and  it  puts the  $96.7                                                               
million in  Title funds at  risk. It  forces districts to  make a                                                               
choice between complying  with state law or with  federal law. He                                                               
said he has  talked to the Assistant Secretary  of Education, who                                                               
made it clear  districts would be out of compliance  under SB 89.                                                               
He said currently the state has  the opportunity to have the data                                                               
that will show  how schools are doing. It  provides personal data                                                               
to parents  and to students  and provides group data  to schools.                                                               
Losing  that data,  especially in  small communities,  might make                                                               
the data invalid.

SENATOR  STEVENS voiced  concern about  the language  that allows                                                               
parents to  opt out of taking  standards-based assessments, tests                                                               
required by  the state. He asked  what happens to those  kids who                                                               
don't  take those  tests.  They would  not be  able  to get  into                                                               
college or  into a training  program. Also, the  department would                                                               
not know how Alaska's students are doing.                                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
COMMISSIONER  HANLEY  said  standards-based tests  are  not  high                                                               
stakes tests  and will have  no impact on grades,  or employment,                                                               
but they  do provide  information to  students and  parents about                                                               
how districts are  doing. He used the example  of the Performance                                                               
Scholarship  to  make  his  point.  He  provided  an  example  of                                                               
students  that could  not score  well  on SAT,  ACT, or  WorkKeys                                                               
tests  in several  districts,  leading to  an  adjustment of  the                                                               
curriculum. He said he is  not afraid of accountability and looks                                                               
forward to making  informed decisions, but does not  want to lose                                                               
the data from test results.

SENATOR  GARDNER  said  as  a  parent of  three  kids  in  public                                                               
schools, she was  very involved and made it her  business to know                                                               
how  things were  going and  to look  at the  work her  kids were                                                               
doing.  She said  she  felt  empowered to  opt  her  kids out  of                                                               
programs and situations.  She asked if parents can  still do that                                                               
now.                                                                                                                            
                                                                                                                                
COMMISSIONER HANLEY  said yes; parents  currently have  the right                                                               
to opt out. He described his experience as an educator.

CHAIR DUNLEAVY asked if parents have inherent parental rights.                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
COMMISSIONER HANLEY agreed.                                                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR DUNLEAVY  said there  should be no  issue with  having that                                                               
provision in SB 89.                                                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
COMMISSIONER HANELY said  there is a difference:  By codifying it                                                               
in SB  89 the  bill states that  "basically school  districts are                                                               
going to encourage the 'opt out,'" which is problematic.                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR  DUNLEAVY  maintained  that  the bill  does  not  encourage                                                               
school districts, it states that parents have the right.                                                                        
                                                                                                                                
COMMISSIONER   HANLEY  countered   that   he  interprets   "shall                                                               
implement the policy to allow parents  to opt out" as opting out,                                                               
as opposed to  current state and federal law where  the state has

CHAIR DUNLEAVY asked if the issue is the assessment part.                                                                       
                                                                                                                                
COMMISSIONER HANLEY said  that is what he is  addressing. He said                                                               
he does not have an issue with the other opt-out topics.

COMMISSIONER HANLEY replied that one  of the teacher standards is

COMMISSIONER HANLEY replied that they are not high-stake tests.                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR  GIESSEL asked  if the  national tests  provide the  same

COMMISSIONER  HANLEY  replied that  they  do.  They provide  data

SENATOR GIESSEL  concluded that the  standards-based test  may or

exchange  students,  and  private   school  students  who  go  to                                                               
college. He said they don't need  to take college entry tests. He                                                               
said  tests  are  tools  that help  the  practitioners.  He  said                                                               
parents have  rights. He questioned  what the purpose  of schools                                                               
is.  The  bill  states  that parents  have  inherent  rights.  He                                                               
questioned if  it is federal  law telling  the state what  to do.                                                               
Parents are questioning what the tests  do. It has changed from a                                                               
state focus to a federal focus.                                                                                                 
                                                                                                                                
4:57:44 PM                                                                                                                    
He reiterated the role of parents  and their right to decide what                                                               
tests their kids  should take. The bill  illustrates that parents                                                               
have  parental rights  and abortion  providers do  not belong  in                                                               
schools.  He questioned  the role  of the  federal government  in                                                               
schools and if there is school choice.

SENATOR HUGGINS  supported Chair  Dunleavy's comments.  He voiced                                                               
concern  about   the  government  versus  parents.   He  stressed

SENATOR  GARDNER  said  she  has   three  amendments.  She  moved

CHAIR  DUNLEAVY  noted  the  bill   would  be  heard  in  another

SENATOR  GARDNER said  she does  not sit  on that  committee. She

SENATOR  HUGGINS  objected.  He  suggested  saying  "at  parental

CHAIR DUNLEAVY asked Senator Gardner to repeat the amendment.                                                                   
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR GARDNER repeated  the amendment. She did not  want to see                                                               
an itemized  list because  if a parent's  reason was  not listed,                                                               
they could not remove their child.                                                                                              
                                                                                                                                
A roll  call vote was taken.  Senators Gardner voted in  favor of                                                               
conceptual  Amendment  4  and   Senators  Huggins,  Giessel,  and                                                               
Dunleavy voted  against it.  Therefore, Amendment  4 failed  by a

SENATOR GARDNER  moved conceptual Amendment  5. She said  on page                                                               
2, line  14, it says "ensuring  that when a child  is absent from

CHAIR DUNLEAVY objected for discussion.                                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR HUGGINS asked for the amendment to be restated.                                                                         
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR GARDNER  said she simply  wants a  way for the  school to                                                               
make a distinction between a parent  choice to remove a child and                                                               
an absence a parent may or may not know about.                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR  GIESSEL thought  that it  was already  established under

SENATOR GARDNER questioned how the school would know.

MS. MARCUM responded  that there are two sections  that apply. On

SENATOR GARDNER opined that (6) does  not give the school any way

CHAIR DUNLEAVY asked if the intent is notification.                                                                             
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR GARDNER  said she  wants the  school to  be able  to know

SENATOR  HUGGINS  offered to  carry  the  amendment to  the  next

SENATOR GARDNER agreed; she withdrew Amendment 5.

SENATOR GARDNER  moved the committee  recede from the  passage of                                                               
Amendment 2,  labeled 29-LS0735\P.2,  on the  grounds that  it is                                                               
unconstitutional. She noted there is a legal opinion on it.                                                                     
                                                                                                                                
CHAIR DUNLEAVY countered  that the legal opinion  says it "raises

said many legal opinions are written  this way, because it is not                                                               
certain until tested by a legal case.                                                                                           
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR GARDNER  declined to  proceed with  her motion  to recede                                                               
from the passage of Amendment 2.
