Legislature Urged to Pass School Notification Bill

Ohio lawmakers are considering a bill that would require school districts to alert parents within two hours of the start of a school day if their child did not show up.

The family of a Cleveland girl found murdered last year showed up at the Ohio Statehouse this week to urge lawmakers to pass Senate Bill 82.. 

Aliana DeFreeze's mother and father were contacted 12 hours after she did not show up for class.  She had been murdered, and found in an abandoned house. 

Lawmakers have until mid-December to pass the bill before needing to restart the legislative process on it next session.
