Action Summary The purpose of this regulatory action is to revise current Board of Education regulations to ensure that all provisions are consistent with reporting requirements of the Code of Virginia, the Safe and Drug Free Schools and Communities Act (20 U.S.C. 7101 et seq.), the Gun Free Schools Act (20 U.S.C. 7151 et seq.), and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (20 U.S.C 1414 et seq.).
