Requires the Board within 90 days of the date this act becomes law, to revise its policy, as required by this act, to be effective beginning with the 2020-21 school year. Requires a report by February 15, 2020, to the Joint Legislative Education Oversight Committee on the revision of its policy and the articulation agreement.
