Repeal current regulation (8VAC 20-280)and promulgate new regulations (8VAC 20-281):Align with amendments in the Code of Va and add language to address changes in the operation of joint schools and joint programs
[Withdrawn 5/8/2007]
General Information
Action Summary Joint schools include academic-year Governor’s schools. Not including the academic-year Governor’s schools, there are approximately 50 joint schools (i.e., regional programs). The 2003 General Assembly passed legislation allowing academic-year Governor’s schools to choose a fiscal agent from among the treasurers of the cities and/or counties participating in this joint school program. Current law dictates that each of the regional programs other than the Governor’s schools designate a fiscal agent according to the physical location of the school. HB 2371, patroned by Delegate Tata, and passed by the 2007 General Assembly will permit all joint school boards to designate a fiscal agent from among participating school divisions regardless of the physical location of the school beginning July 1, 2007. This bill resulted from a legislative proposal put forth by the Department of Education to streamline the operation of joint schools. As a result of this legislation and the language that needs to be added to address changes that have been made in the operation of joint schools and joint programs since the regulation was written these regulations need to be revised. Because the changes will be extensive, this will be accomplished by repealing the current regulation and promulgating a new regulation.
