2021 House Bill 4911: Authorize “innovative” school districts
Introduced by Rep. Brad Paquette (R) on May 25, 2021
To authorize rules for a type of school district to be styled “public innovative districts,” which among other things would have to assign each student a mentor and award credits based on “competencies” rather than class hours. The schools could hold year-round classes, and House Bill 4627 would exempt them from the requirement to provide 1,094 hours of instruction over 180 school days. Essentially, the schools would be able to do more things without seeking specific permission ("waivers") from the state Department of Education.   Official Text and Analysis.
