TO APPROVE REGULATIONS OF THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION, RELATING TO ASSESSMENT PROGRAM, DESIGNATED AS REGULATION DOCUMENT NUMBER 4529, 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 Assessment Program, designated as Regulation Document Number 4529, 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.
The State Board of Education (SBE) proposes to amend Regulation 43-262. This regulation delineates requirements for assessment programs managed by the Office of Assessment. Amendments are being proposed to merge language from Regulations 43-260 and 43-262.4 into this regulation so that regulations governing assessments are in one regulation. Duplicative language resulting from merging the three regulations is deleted. In compliance with Section 59-18-310 of Act 155 that states that "students are no longer required to meet the exit examination requirements to earn a South Carolina high school diploma," references to passing an exit examination as a condition for receiving a South Carolina high school diploma have been deleted.
Notice of Drafting for the proposed repeal of this regulation was published in the State Register on August 22, 2014.
