HB 1462 -- School Curriculum

Sponsor:  Edwards-Pavia

This bill repeals several sections of the Outstanding Schools
Act and reauthorizes the tuition reimbursement program for
school district personnel, a program originally established
under the Excellence in Education Act of 1985.

Among the provisions repealed by the bill are those that
established the statewide school and student assessment program
and the process by which academically deficient schools would be
audited.  Under the bill the State Board of Education will adopt
academic standards which are to comprise no more than 50% of a
school's curriculum and will be designated as core knowledge
levels with specific content in history, geography, mathematics,
science, language arts, and fine arts and are to be used as
guidelines for student progress.  The core knowledge guidelines
will not be mandates for school districts. Furthermore local
districts may select their own educational objectives,
curriculum, and teaching materials according to what they deem
appropriate to fit the needs of the community.  The bill limits
the state's authority to the publishing of an evaluation of the
educational performance of the school.

Funds formerly designated for statewide areas of critical need,
including state management teams in academically deficient
schools, for grants for resources to districts which are failing
to achieve assessment standards, for site-based decision making
information, for implementing recommended curriculum frameworks,
training in new assessment techniques, and for other programs
for at-risk students are redirected to fund tuition
reimbursement.  Tuition reimbursement is available for all
school district principals, instructional supervisors, classroom
teachers, and other certified personnel in an amount equal to
the rate charged at Missouri public colleges and universities
for successful completion of a credit course, with a grade of A
or B, in the area of certification in which the school personnel
is employed.
