A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §18-2-5h, relating to directing the State Board of Education to determine what principal and teacher reports are unnecessary; and requiring the state board to identify to the Legislature these reports with recommendations on how to alleviate the administrative burden of these reports on principals and teachers.

Be it enacted by the Legislature of West Virginia:

    That the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, be amended by adding thereto a new section, designated §18-2-5h, to read as follows:

ARTICLE 2. STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION.

§18-2-5h. Review and determination of principal and teacher reports; identify reports with recommendations to Legislative Oversight Commission.

    The state board shall study, evaluate and determine all reports required to be generated by principals and teachers to determine those reports that are unduly burdensome, repetitive, unnecessary, counterproductive or outdated in effort to alleviate the administrative burden on principals and teachers.

    The state board shall identify any such reports, together with any comments and recommendations on how to reduce or consolidate these reports, to the Legislative Oversight Commission on Education Accountability, no later than December 31 of each year.

 

 

    NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to direct the State Board of Education to determine what principal and teacher reports are unnecessary; and to require the state board to identify these reports to the Legislature with recommendations on how to alleviate the administrative burden of these reports on principals and teachers.



    This section has been completely rewritten; therefore, it has been completely underscored.
