Georgia law (O.C.G.A. § 20-2-690) provides “within 30 days after the beginning of each school year, it shall be the duty of the administrator of each private school to provide to the school superintendent of each local public school district which has residents enrolled in the private school a list of the name, age, grade and residence of each resident enrolled. At the end of each school month, it shall be the duty of the administrator of each private school to notify the school superintendent of each local public school district the name, age, grade and residence of each student residing in the public school district who enrolls or terminates enrollment at the private school during the immediately preceding school month. Such records shall indicate when attendance has been suspended and the grounds for such suspension."
