TO APPROVE REGULATIONS OF THE BOARD OF EDUCATION, RELATING TO CLEARLY DEFINED VOCATIONAL PROGRAMS (REPEAL), DESIGNATED AS REGULATION DOCUMENT NUMBER 2009, PURSUANT TO THE PROVISIONS OF ARTICLE 1, CHAPTER 23, TITLE 1 OF THE 1976 CODE.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The regulations of the Board of Education, relating to Clearly Defined Vocational Programs (Repeal), designated as Regulation Document Number 2009, and submitted to the General Assembly pursuant to the provisions of Article 1, Chapter 23, Title 1 of the 1976 Code, are approved.
SECTION 2. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
SUMMARY AS SUBMITTED BY PROMULGATING AGENCY.
Regulation 43-235.1 is outdated and should be repealed. The State Plan for Vocational-Technical Education is current in defining actions needed to restructure occupational education into clearly defined programs, and the South Carolina School-to-Work Transition Act of 1994 establishes a school-to-work system to equip all students with relevant academic skills, marketable occupational skills, and appropriate work-place behaviors. The act states that the structure for developing the school-to-work system, which is available to all students as needed and appropriate, shall be flexible to meet local school needs.
