Regulations Governing Reduction of State Aid When Length of School Term Below 180 School Days [REPEALED] [8 VAC 20 ‑ 520]
Amendments required by Code of Virginia
General Information
Action Summary The 2004 Virginia General Assembly passed three bills that amended this section of the Code and made the changes effective from passage of the bills. The bills were HB 1256 (Van Landingham), SB 452 (Whipple), and HB 575 (Hamilton). HB 1256 and SB 452 clarify the schedule of makeup days and circumstances in which approval may be granted so that state basic aid funding will not be reduced because of school closings due to severe weather conditions or other emergency situations. HB 575 permits the Board of Education to waive the requirement that school divisions compensate for school closings resulting from a declared state of emergency. HB 575 and SB 452 have emergency enactment clauses and are effective upon passage. HB 1256 and SB 452 require the Board of Education to promulgate regulations to implement the provisions to be effective within 280 days of enactment. Therefore, this emergency regulation is required by changes to the Code of Virginia. The regulation is not otherwise exempt under the provisions of ยง 9-6.14:4.1(C)(4).
