A JOINT RESOLUTION TO PROVIDE THAT THE GOVERNING BODY OF A SCHOOL DISTRICT MAY WAIVE THE REQUIREMENT THAT SCHOOLS MAKE UP FULL DAYS MISSED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER FOR UP TO FIVE FULL SCHOOL DAYS THAT STUDENTS WHO ATTEND A SCHOOL, CHARTER SCHOOL, OR APPROVED HOME SCHOOL PROGRAM IN THE DISTRICT MISSED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER DURING THE 2013-2014 SCHOOL YEAR IF THE DISTRICT HAS EXHAUSTED ALL STATUTORILY REQUIRED MAKE-UP DAYS REMAINING ON THE 2013-2014 SCHOOL CALENDAR.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
Waiver of inclement weather make-up day requirements
SECTION 1. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 59-1-425, the governing body of a school district may waive the requirement that schools make up full days missed due to inclement weather for five or fewer full school days that students who attend schools or charter schools in the district missed due to inclement weather during the 2013-2014 school year; provided, however, that a district may not waive this requirement until it has exhausted all statutorily required make-up days remaining on the 2013-2014 school calendar. When a district waives a make-up day pursuant to this section, the make-up day also is waived for any student participating in a home schooling program approved by the board of trustees of the district in which the student resides.
SECTION 2. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Ratified the 11th day of March, 2014.
Approved the 12th day of March, 2014. -- T.
