Conference report recommends the following changes to 5th edition to reconcile matters in controversy. Amends proposed GS 115C-390.4(b)(6) by including the requirement that the form to be used by parents or guardians to deny permission for use of corporal punishment on the student must advise that the student may be subject to suspension, among other possible punishments, for offenses that would otherwise not require suspension if corporal punishment were available. Deletes Sections 6 and 7, which amended GS 115C-105.47(b)(6) and (b)(13)b., adding positive behavior management or support programs that have been adopted to the criteria included in the reports required pursuant to those subsections. Amends Section 16 to provide that if Senate Bill 498 becomes law, that act is repealed.
