A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT TO REDUCE REPORTING REQUIREMENTS FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS.
Requires the Department of Public Instruction to delete at least all of the eight specified reports. Effective upon the implementation of the Instructional Improvement System.
Amends GS 115C-12 deleting date requirements for local school administrative units to comply with the Uniform Education Reporting System.
Amends GS 115C-12(18), adding subsection (e) requiring reporting and data collection developed by the State Board of Education (State Board) to be incorporated into the Instructional Improvement System to minimize unnecessary reporting by local school administrative units.
Amends GS 115C-12(19), expanding the list of actions not required of local school administrative units to include subsection (iv). Accordingly, local school administrative units are not required to provide information that is unnecessary to comply with state or federal law and not relevant to student outcomes and the efficient operation of the public schools. Items to be included in the State Board's report to the Joint Legislative Education Oversight Committee are the reports that are required at state level, the evaluation and determination for continuing individual reports, and any reports that the State Board has consolidated or eliminated for the upcoming school year.
Requires the State Board to report to the Oversight Committee by March 15, 2014, on the elimination of reporting requirements and the justification for the continuation of any required reports.
Effective when the act becomes law, unless otherwise indicated, and applies beginning with the 2013-14 school year.
