AN ACT TO EXERCISE NORTH CAROLINA'S CONSTITUTIONAL AUTHORITY TO REPLACE COMMON CORE AND ESTABLISH, PROMOTE, AND ASSURE HIGH ACADEMIC STANDARDS THAT ARE ROBUST AND APPROPRIATE FOR NORTH CAROLINA PUBLIC EDUCATION.
House amendment to the 2nd edition makes the following changes. Amends new GS 115C-83.30, which establishes the Academic Standards Review Commission (Commission). Qualifies the Commission's ability to contract for professional, clerical, and consulting services on the availability of funds. Also declares that Commission members are to receive per diem, subsistence, and travel allowances only to the extent that funds are available. Conditions the receipt of reimbursement by the Department of Administration for providing meeting rooms, office space, equipment, telephones, and supplies to the Commission on the availability of funds to make the reimbursement.
Repeals the appropriation (was, $75,000) from the General Fund to the Department of Administration for the 2014-15 fiscal year that was designated for useto implement the provisions of Section 2, establishing the Commission. Instead, declares that nothing in this act requires the General Assembly to appropriate funds to implement the act. Provides that Section 2, which establishes the Academic Standards Commission, only becomes effective if funds are appropriated to support the work of the Commission in the Current Operations and Capital Improvements Appropriations Act of 2014.
