NASHVILLE (AP) — Tennessee parents would be able to opt their children out of extracurricular school activities under a proposal that has passed the Senate.

The measure sponsored by Republican Sen. Dolores Gresham of Somerville was approved 30-0 on Wednesday. The companion bill passed the House 75-14 last month.

The lower chamber must now agree to minor changes by the Senate before the legislation goes to the governor for his consideration.

Under the legislation, schools would notify parents about the activities "by way of student handbooks or policy guidebooks."

Sponsors say those parents who don't want their children to participate in a certain activity can send a note to the school.
