TO DIRECT THE STATE DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION TO COMPILE A LIST OF STATE AND LOCAL REGULATIONS IMPOSED ON SCHOOLS WHICH IT CONSIDERS AS UNNECESSARILY BURDENSOME, AND TO PROVIDE THAT THE FINDINGS OF THE DEPARTMENT SHALL BE REPORTED TO THE GENERAL ASSEMBLY BY JANUARY 1, 1995, AND MUST INCLUDE RECOMMENDATIONS TO ELIMINATE OUT-DATED, DUPLICATIVE, OR UNNECESSARY REGULATIONS IMPOSED ON SCHOOLS.
Whereas, it is clear that public education in South Carolina must comply with substantial amounts of paperwork as a result of local and state regulations imposed on the schools; and
Whereas, the members of the General Assembly believe that to reduce or eliminate unnecessary paperwork and regulations would allow classroom teachers and administrators to focus more on classroom teaching and learning. Now, therefore,
Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:
That the members of the General Assembly direct the State Department of Education to compile a list of state and local regulations imposed on schools which it considers as unnecessarily burdensome. The findings of the department shall be reported to the General Assembly by January 1, 1995, and must include recommendations to eliminate out-dated, duplicative, or unnecessary regulations imposed on schools.
Be it further resolved that a copy of this resolution be forwarded to the State Department of Education.
