TO APPROVE REGULATIONS OF THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION, RELATING TO ALIGNMENT OF ASSESSMENT AND ACCOUNTABILITY ELEMENTS WITH THE NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND ACT, DESIGNATED AS REGULATION DOCUMENT NUMBER 4603, 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 State Board of Education, relating to Alignment of Assessment and Accountability Elements with the No Child Left Behind Act, designated as Regulation Document Number 4603, 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.
State Board of Education (SBE) Regulation 43-307 requires SBE assessments and accountability elements to align with the No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB) with much specificity. The proposed amendment will ensure that South Carolina will comply with federal law without having to amend the regulation each time the NCLB is amended.
Notice of Drafting for the proposed amendments to the regulation was published in the State Register on September 25, 2015.
