Description

Public elementary and secondary schools; agreements to establish opportunity classrooms. Requires each school board to enter into an agreement, upon request, with a public elementary or secondary school teacher or a group of such teachers in a local school division who represents more than 20 students to establish an opportunity classroom, which the bill defines as a classroom in which a curriculum in English, mathematics, science, history and social science, and any other subject area, as set forth in such agreement, is offered that is different than any curriculum that is otherwise offered in such subject areas in the local school division. The bill permits each school board to enter into such agreement for an opportunity classroom if the requesting teacher or group of teachers represents fewer than 20 students. The bill contains requirements for such agreements to establish opportunity classrooms and provisions relating to funding for opportunity classrooms and for services, transportation, and assessments for students who are enrolled in an opportunity classroom.
