Amends GS 115C-105.27(b), providing that strategies for improving student performance must include a plan to identify and eliminate unnecessary and redundant reporting requirements for teachers. Streamlining the school's reporting system and procedures will also serve as a strategy for improving student performance.
Amends GS 115C-307(g), providing for the above eliminations and streamlining of processes. Provides that a duplicative report will only be required when the superintendent determines there is a compelling need and there is not a more expeditious manner of providing the information to the local board. A school improvement team can request the superintendent to consider the elimination of a redundant reporting requirement. The superintendent will then recommend to the local board the elimination. If he or she does not, the improvement team can request a hearing with the local board as provided in GS 115C-45(c).
Effective when the act becomes law, applying to the 2013-14 school year.
