Notification to school principals of students charged with committing certain crimes. Amends the requirement that principals or their designees receive notification from local law-enforcement authorities when students in their school commit certain crimes to require that such notification be given, whether the student is released to the custody of his parent or, if 18 years of age or more, is released on bond. The bill further requires that any school superintendent who receives notification that a juvenile has committed an act that would be a crime if committed by an adult pursuant to subsection G of 16.1-260 must report such information to the principal of the school in which the juvenile is enrolled.
