AMENDED ANALYSIS

 

This bill allows rules designed to implement federal law to exceed the minimum requirements of federal law but requires that such rules take into account the fiscal impact on the local school district.  The bill also provides that a school shall be deemed to be providing the opportunity for an adequate education for the 2017-2018 school year if the school furnishes evidence that it has initiated the process of obtaining full accreditation from the New England Association of Schools and Colleges.
