Waiver Bill Passed by the Senate
Late last week, we asked for your assistance in seeking support for Del. Scott's waiver bill (HB 2494). This bill will permit a school board to seek waivers from the Board of Education from state regulations and for an Individual School Accreditation Plan on behalf of one or more of its schools. We are very pleased to report that this bill was passed by the Senate today on a vote of 33 to 7. Thanks to all of you who urged your Senators to support this important bill.
