New School Laws

Now that the Legislature has finally adjourned, it’s time to take stock of what bills passed and what they mean to schools.

More than 40 other bills also were passed into law, including a change to charter school funding and laws that help clarify the teacher evaluation process and the move toward standards-based diplomas.
