A Marysville lawmaker is calling for the passage of a bill that would allow a juvenile court judge to order that a school release the records of an abused child.

House Bill 14, sponsored by Rep. Dorothy Pelanda, states that if a complaint has been filed alleging that a child is abused, neglected or dependent, then that child’s school must, upon request, turn over the child’s grades, credits, transcripts, individualized education programs and 504 plans to any school district in which the child enrolls after the complaint was filed.
