[H 1427]

Approved April 19, 2006


Be it enacted by the General Assembly of Virginia:

1.  § 1. No Child Left Behind; identification plan.

A. That the Virginia Board of Education shall develop a plan to identify initiatives or conditions that are currently being funded by the federal act known as No Child Left Behind, that are not an integral or necessary component of the Commonwealth's own Standards of Quality, Standards of Accreditation, or Standards of Learning as authorized by the Virginia General Assembly and the Board of Education. Included in this plan will be information on the consequences (including any potential loss of Federal funding) if the Commonwealth elected to not comply with the identified components.

B. Upon the development of the plan required by subsection A, the Office of the Attorney General of Virginia shall provide the Board and the General Assembly an estimate of the costs for providing legal services in the event that the elimination of any initiatives or conditions results in withholding of Title I funds.

C. The Board of Education shall report its plan to the Senate Committee on Education and Health, the House Committee on Education, the Senate Committee on Finance, and the House Committee on Appropriations by October 1, 2006.
