PA's Safe Schools Act Regulations

Were you wondering what ever happened to the PA Safe Schools regulations?  Yeah, me too.

So I noticed in the PA Bulletin today that the PA Board of Education just submitted them for IRRC review.  But wait, you say, I thought they had already submitted them some time ago.  Turns out, you are correct.  On March 15, 2012, the Board discovered that the Safe Schools Act regulations it had previously proposed (the new Chapter 10) had "issues of form and legality" and voted to immediately withdraw them. 

Apparently, they felt the changes needed were relatively minor because they also voted to give the authority to make those changes to the Board's Acting Executive Director.  So, the Acting Executive Director got to make all necessary non-policy changes on their behalf to make the regulations comply with proper form and law.  As above, they were just recently resubmitted to the IRRC for final review.

If you want to see the Board's resolution to withdraw the prior version, it is available here.  If you wish to see the new regulations, as well as the few comments issued, they can be viewed here.
