House committee substitute amends the 1st edition as follows.
Reenacts GS 115C-105.41 (repealed in the 1st edition). Instead repeals the provisions of GS 115C-105.41, which required the development of personal education plans (PEPs) for students deemed to be at risk of academic failure. Replaces the requirement to provide PEPs for academically failing students with the requirement that local boards of education adopt and implement rules that direct school improvement teams to consider transition plans for at-risk students, as defined by the State Board of Education. Provides that the transition plans are to be used to assist at-risk students in making a successful transition between the elementary and middle school years and between the middle and high school years. Also retains language regarding the need for local school administrative units to identify students who are at risk for academic failure as early as can reasonably be accomplished.
Amends the catch line for GS 115C-15.41 and the long and short titles of this act to reflect the changes in bill content.
