new text begin (a) A parent or guardian of twins or higher order multiples
may request that the children be placed in the same classroom or
in separate classrooms if the children are in the same grade
level at the same school. The school may recommend classroom
placement to the parents and provide professional education
advice to the parents to assist them in making the best decision
for their children's education. A school must provide the
placement requested by the children's parent or guardian, unless
the school board makes a classroom placement determination
following the school principal's request according to this
section. The parent or guardian must request the classroom
placement no later than 14 days after the first day of each
school year or 14 days after the first day of attendance of the
children during a school year if the children are enrolled in
the school after the school year commences. At the end of the
initial grading period, if the school principal, in consultation
with the children's classroom teacher, determines that the
requested classroom placement is disruptive to the school, the
school principal may request that the school board determine the
children's classroom placement.
