Item 139 #7c

Education: Elementary and Secondary
Direct Aid To Public Education

Page 101, after line 50, insert:
“17. To provide additional flexibility, notwithstanding the provisions of § 22.1-79.1 of the Code of Virginia, any school division that was granted a waiver regarding the opening date of the school year for the 2011-12 school year under the good cause requirements shall continue to be granted a waiver for the 2012-13 school year.”

(This amendment is self-explanatory. For the current 2011-2012 school year, there are 77 school divisions that have been granted school opening waivers.)
