View Amendment Current Amendment: 13 to Bill 945

Rep. GOVAN proposes the following Amendment No. to S. 945 (COUNCIL\CM\945C007.GT.CM22):

Reference is to Printer's Date 5/4/22--H.

Amend the bill, as and if amended, SECTION 3, Article 5, by adding:

/Section 59-29-629. Before the following complaint form can be filled out, a student's parent/guardian must call the school so that parents, teachers, and administrators can have a conversation. If there are any facts that speak to the parent's allegation, they can proceed to fill out the form and begin the more formal investigation. If the complaint is found to be entirely baseless, the administrator will alert the parent. They will then not have an opportunity to initiate the formal process. Each parent will have one opportunity per year to appeal a finding of a meritless claim to the LEA. /
