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 JULY 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 enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The State Department of Education is directed 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 July 1, 1995, and must include recommendations to eliminate out-dated, duplicative, or unnecessary regulations imposed on schools.
SECTION 2. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
