Adopted in Lieu of original; takes status of original
AN ACT TO AMEND TITLE 14 OF THE DELAWARE CODE RELATING TO THE SUSSEX COUNTY VOCATIONAL-TECHNICAL HIGH SCHOOL DISTRICT.
This Act revises Chapter 26 of Title 14, regarding the Sussex County Vocational-Technical High School District ("District") by doing all of the following: 1. Revises the tax rate for the District and clarifies the acceptable use for the tax revenue. 2. Repeals § 2602(b) of Title 14 because the Tax Rate Review Committee has not been active in decades and it has effectively been replaced by the citizen budget oversight committee created under § 1508 of Title 14. 3. Revises the number of students who may be enrolled in the District. 4. It creates a preference for student admissions for children of members of the District's Board of Education. 5. Revises academic eligibility by requiring that accepted students remain academically eligible for promotion under the standards established by the Department of Education. This Act also makes technical corrections to conform existing law to the standards of the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual.
Takes effect upon being signed into law
