HB 620 (2017)
House/Senate Bill: House
Description: As originally written, this bill would have prohibited the state Board of Education from adopting any rules that require school districts to use specific curriculum or assessments, unless the program is fully paid for by the state or federal government. This bill also would have prevented the Board of Education from adopting any rules that exceed minimum requirements set in law. The bill was amended to instead only allow rules that exceed minimum federal requirements if the rules do not require "unreimbursed expenditures or administrative burdens" on schools.
