AN ACT TO MODIFY THE DEFINITION OF LOW-PERFORMING SCHOOLS AND TO MAKE ASSOCIATED CHANGES TO THE TYPES OF SCHOOLS THAT MAY BE APPROVED FOR A REFORM MODEL.
Amends GS 115C-105.37, removing from the definition of low-performing schools schools that earn an overall school performance grade of D or F and a school growth score of "met expected growth," as defined by GS 115C-83.15. Makes conforming changes to the statute and GS 115C-105.39A, concerning the identification of low-performing local school administrative units. Similarly amends GS 115C-218.94(a) to provide for the same changes regarding the identification of low-performing charter schools.
Amends GS 115C-105.37B, authorizing the State Board of Education to approve a local board of education's request to reform any school in its administrative unit that the State Board has identified as having earned, for at least two of three consecutive years, an overall performance grade of D or F and a school growth score of "met expected growth" or "not met expected growth," as defined by GS 115C-83.15 (was, any school that the State Board has identified as one of the continually low-performing schools in NC). Allows a local board whose request is approved to adopt one of the existing reform models to implement in the school. Makes conforming changes.
Applies beginning with the 2019-20 school year.
