Senate amendment reported in on 6/7/11 makes the following changes to third edition. Deletes provision in new GS 115C-390.4(b)(6) regarding corporal punishment on a student who is a child with a disability, and replaces it with requirement that no corporal punishment be administered to any student whose parent or guardian has stated in writing that corporal punishment will not be administered to that student. Requires that parents and guardians be given a form to make such an election at the beginning of the school year or when a child first enters school during the year. States that corporal punishment may be administered if the parent does not return the form.
