Bill summary

Senate committee substitute makes the following changes to the 3rd edition.

Further amends GS 115C-269.35(b) regarding indicators that must be included in EPP annual performance reports. In addition to existing required indicators and information, now reinstates the requirement that the reports include time to graduation rates and requires that the reports include the retention of beginning educators in the profession for at least two years (was, at least three years) after licensure. 

Amends GS 115C-269.45(a) to require an EPP be assigned warned status if the program fails to meet the performance standards of any one sex, race, or ethnicity demographic group on any of the indications in GS 115C-269.35(a) for two consecutively measured years, regardless of whether the deficiency is in the same standard (was, in the same demographic group or standard).  

Adds that the State Board of Education must not implement the weighted model for EPPs without the General Assembly's express authorization.

Adds the requirement that the State Board of Education report on the rule that is to be adopted by October 1, 2019, to the Joint Legislative Education Oversight Committee.
