A BILL to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §18-2-7d, relating to education; and requiring elementary students to have access to a certified library media specialist, art specialist, music specialist and physical education specialist at least twice a week.

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 §18-2-7d, to read as follows:

ARTICLE 2. STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION.

§18-2-7d. Certified specialist access.

    The West Virginia Board of Education shall, with the advice of the state superintendent, prescribe a program for elementary schools requiring that, not less than twice a week for an equal amount of time, the students have access to each of the following: a certified library media specialist, art specialist, music specialist and physical education specialist. The access must be for a minimum of sixty minutes weekly. Increasing sessions with these specialists may not add to the responsibilities of the regular classroom teachers.




    NOTE: The purpose of this bill is to require elementary students to have access to a certified library media specialist, art specialist, music specialist and physical education specialist at least twice a week.


    §18-2-7d is new; therefore, it has been completely underscored.
