No. 8: Added responsibilities for school districts
Here are just a few of the laws passed that will add more work for school district staff:
- Annual training is now required for paraprofessionals who provide direct support to students with disabilities
- Requires school district to have a 10-year facilities maintenance plan adopted by its board and approved by the commissioner
- School districts are now required to pay a one-time cost for juniors or seniors who take the ACT test, which must be offered at the high school
