Bill Analysis

Summary: HB 2952 would require the Commissioner of Education to provide a decision on an appeal brought against a school district no later than 240 days after the appeal is filed. The stakeholders can agree in writing for a maximum of a 60 day extension.

Analysis: HB 2952 limits government by setting a date when all parties involved know that a decision will be made on an appeal rather than letting it linger under the discretion of the Commissioner as to when a decision will be issued. We support HB 2952.
