House Files Bill Requiring Districts To Offer Summer School Program

House Speaker Tim Moore and other representatives on Tuesday filed House Bill 82: Summer Learning Choice for NC Families, which would require all NC school districts to create and offer 6-week “learning recovery and enrichment” summer programs for all K-12 students. Specifically, the bill requires LEAs to develop guidelines for prioritizing at-risk students for the voluntary program, although students not identified as at-risk could also participate within available space. Members of the House K-12 Education Committee discussed an updated version of the bill at length during a meeting on Wednesday, in preparation for a vote by committee members next week, likely Tuesday, February 23.
