Senate committee substitute to the 1st edition makes the following changes.
Amends proposed GS 115C-174.12(d1) by amending the second condition under which the local board of education is required to submit a plan to eliminate certain local standardized testing, to be when the number of hours required for students to complete the test exceeds the State average (was, State combined average) over the prior two-year period. Adds a requirement that the State Board of Education waive the requirement that a local board develop and submit a plan if the Board finds that the local board has made significant progress toward reducing local testing to the State average. Changes the effective date of the changes to GS 115C-174.12 so that they apply beginning with reports issued in 2020 based on data from the 2019-20 school year.
