SB 136 - This act permits fully accredited school districts with more than 5,000 students to obtain a waiver from the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education permitting the district to choose its own accreditation standards if the district has maintained five consecutive years of full accreditation under state standards and can demonstrate through valid methods that its students are attaining reasonable standards. This waiver procedure supersedes other waiver rules.

This act is identical to HB 1406 from 2004.
