Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
This bill eliminates a number of expired or outdated reporting requirements
imposed on the Department of Public Instruction. Eliminated in this bill are a
requirement to submit a report to the legislature and to the governor, by January 1,
2001, and January 1, 2003, regarding DPI's progress in securing school safety
funding; a requirement to submit to the standing committees of the legislature a
report summarizing the physical condition and capacity of the state's public schools;
and a requirement to submit, by July 1, 2005, a report to the standing committees
of the legislature on the imposition of school uniforms by school boards.
The bill also corrects an incorrect cross-reference in a provision requiring the
department to provide notice of educational options.
