Senate Roll Call 268 on
2020 House Bill 5913: Authorize Remote Public School Instruction Only in 2020-21 (as passed)

To only require school districts to provide instruction “…online, digitally, by other remote means, in a synchronous or asynchronous format" in the 2020-21 school year.
To accommodate this the bill would waive the requirement that at least 75% of the students enrolled in a district must be present for the district to get state aid on any given day. Instead, it appears that with some exceptions and ambiguities, schools would get funding if they “ensure” that at least 75% of the students who are enrolled for non-classroom instruction get at least one “two-way interaction” per month with one of his or her teachers, which could be an email, phone call or text message, or an actual face-to-face conversation. For purposes of tracking and public reporting, the standard is two teacher contacts per week.
Also, to require school districts to administer a test during the first nine weeks of the 2020-21 school year to all K-8 students that assesses their progress on reading and math, and do so once again before the end of the school year.
