The text of the budget amendment creating a new type of Academic Distress Commission. The provision cleared the House and heads next to the Senate:
Allows the Superintendent of Public Instruction, in uncodified law, to create an academic-distress commission for any school district that is found by the Auditor of State to have knowingly manipulated student data with evidence of intent to deceive. Consistent with current law, charges such a commission with assisting the district for which it was established in improving the district’s academic performance.
Appoints five members to the commission, three appointed by the state superintendent and two appointed by the mayor of the largest municipality in the affected district. Dissolves an academic distress commission established under the bill’s uncodified provision in accordance with rules adopted by the State Board of Education, which rules the State Board must adopt not later than 90 days after the bill’s (immediate) effective date.
