AN ACT to amend the Code of West Virginia, 1931, as amended, by adding thereto a new section, designated §18-3-12, requiring the state superintendent to establish a special community development school pilot program for implementation in a public school with significant enrollments of disadvantaged, minority and underachieving students for the purpose of developing and implementing strategies that could be replicated; and requiring reports to Legislative Oversight Commission on Education Accountability and state board.

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 §18-3-12, to read as follows:

ARTICLE 3. STATE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS.

§18-3-12. Special community development school pilot program.

(a) The state superintendent shall establish a special community development school pilot program to be implemented in one public school for the duration of five years. The public school designated by the state superintendent for the pilot shall have significant enrollments of disadvantaged, minority and underachieving students. The designated public school under the direction of the county board and county superintendent shall work in collaboration with higher education, community organizations and the state board to develop and implement strategies that could be replicated in other public schools with significant enrollments of disadvantaged, minority and underachieving students to improve academic achievement.

(b) Beginning in January, 2011, on or before the first day of the regular session of the Legislature, and each year thereafter, the state superintendent shall make a status report to the Legislative Oversight Commission on Education Accountability and to the state board. The report may include any recommendations based on the progress of the demonstration project that he or she considers either necessary for improving the operations of the demonstration project or prudent for improving student achievement in other public schools through replication of successful demonstration school programs.
