MEMORANDUM

Posted: December 28, 2016 10:44 AM
From: Senator Mike Folmer
To: All Senate members
Subject: Reintroduction of Repeal of Antiquated Provisions of the School Code
 
I plan to reintroduce Senate Bill 794 from last Session to repeal antiquated provisions of the School Code. Cosponsors of this measure were: Eichelberger, Gordner, Rafferty, White, Stefano, Vulakovich, Aument, Wozniak, Yudichak, and Scarnati.

Almost any conversation with educators inevitably leads to a discussion of state-imposed mandates and obligations. A previous version of SB 794 was unanimously reported out of the Senate Education Committee to repeal antiquated provisions of the Public School Code after being vetted through the Department of Education and numerous education groups.

None of these proposed repeals would radically change existing education policies; all are considered noncontroversial, including:
  • Section 112. Report of Racial and Ethnic Groupings. (1993)
  • Section 113. Study of Public Schools that Provide Internet Instruction. (2001)
