Read the first time January 12, 2017.
TO PROVIDE FOR THE WAIVER OF DAYS THAT SCHOOLS IN GEORGETOWN COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT MISSED DUE TO SNOW OR EXTREME WEATHER CONDITIONS, TO PROVIDE THAT THESE WAIVERS ARE AVAILABLE IN ADDITION TO THOSE AVAILABLE BY STATUTE, AND TO PROVIDE THAT THESE WAIVERS MAY BE MADE REGARDLESS OF WHETHER THE SCHOOLS FOR WHICH A WAIVER IS SOUGHT HAVE MADE UP THREE FULL DAYS, OR THE EQUIVALENT NUMBER OF HOURS, MISSED DUE TO SNOW, EXTREME WEATHER, OR OTHER DISRUPTIONS REQUIRING THE SCHOOL TO CLOSE DURING THE 2016-2017 SCHOOL YEAR.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 59-1-425, the Georgetown County School District Board of Education may waive the requirement that schools in the district make up full days missed due to snow or extreme weather for school days that students who attend schools or charter schools in the district missed due to snow or extreme weather during the 2016-2017 School Year. These waivers are available in addition to the existing waiver provisions of Section 59-1-425, and may be made regardless of whether a school that closed has made up three full days, or the equivalent number of hours, missed due to snow, extreme weather, or other disruptions requiring the school to close during the 2016-2017 School Year. When the district waives a make-up day pursuant to this joint resolution, the make-up day also is waived for any student participating in a home schooling program approved by the Georgetown County School District Board of Education.
SECTION 2. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
