Item 2
Bill Tracking, Additional Documents Chamber Status

Amend the bill by striking out everything after the enacting clause and before the summary and inserting the following:

Sec. 1. 20-A MRSA §4801, sub-§2-B  is enacted to read:

2-B Start time.   Beginning in school year 2017-2018, a school administrative unit shall ensure that a secondary school in the unit does not start a school day before 8:00 a.m.


This amendment changes the earliest allowed school day start time for secondary schools proposed in the bill from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. and eliminates the requirement in the bill that a secondary school within a school administrative unit must allow 11 consecutive hours between school activities and the next school day. This amendment also eliminates the requirement in the bill that a school administrative unit provide a plan to adopt a later school start time in its secondary schools.
