AN ACT TO ALLOW GRADUATING SENIORS IN UNION COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS TO RECEIVE NUMERIC GRADES ON TRANSCRIPTS.
House committee substitute makes the following changes to the 1st edition.
Limits the scope of the act to the Union County Public School System and the Union County Board of Education (Board) only, rather defining the scope to include all systems and local boards of education. Expands the authorization's notwithstanding clause to include GS 116-11(10a), regarding standardized transcripts and secondary and postsecondary information exchange. Concerning the authority granted to the Board to allow each graduating senior to choose how each course grade appears on transcripts, specifies that the options are for how the grades will appear on the student's official transcript. Further specifies that the numeric option includes the grade during the remainder of the semester through remote instruction if it is higher than the grade representing learning as of March 13, 2020, only if numeric grades were given during remote instruction.
Eliminates the appropriation and accompanying provisions.
Changes the act's titles.
