Mandates that school districts would be allowed to ignore include class size limits, alternative education options, hiring of guidance counselors and public input on changes to school board policies.
The committee also approved HB 2087, which is similar to HB 2131 except that school districts would voluntarily seek to be exempted from certain mandates. The Board of Education would grant final approval.
HB 2087, which passed 12-5, and HB 2131 now go to the House Calendar Committee, which will decide whether they will be given a hearing on the House floor.
