TO PROVIDE FOR THE WAIVER OF TWO OR FEWER DAYS THAT SCHOOLS IN CHESTER COUNTY CLOSED IN FEBRUARY 2015 DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER FROM THE STATUTORY REQUIREMENT THAT SCHOOL DAYS MISSED DUE TO SNOW, EXTREME WEATHER, OR OTHER DISRUPTIONS BE MADE UP, AND TO PROVIDE THAT THIS REQUIREMENT DOES NOT APPLY TO TIME MISSED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER FROM THESE STORMS.
Amend Title To Conform
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
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 three or fewer full school days that students who attend schools or charter schools in the district missed due to inclement weather during the 2014-2015 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 2014-2015 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.
