Probation officers, social workers and school officials would have to communicate about students who miss more than 10 school days per academic year, under a bill set for legislative debate.

Nebraska lawmakers could vote as early as Tuesday on the bill (LB463) that adjusts several aspects of the state's juvenile laws.

One aspect would allow law enforcement agencies access to the sealed juvenile records of anyone who applies for a law enforcement
job.

It also would require school districts to set policies for excessive absenteeism due to a serious illness.

The bill was introduced by Omaha Sen. Brad Ashford, on behalf of Gov. Dave Heineman.

Lawmakers were not scheduled to meet on Monday.
