House passes bill nixing RESAs, OEPA, 180 separate school days mandate
Ryan Quinn, Charleston Gazette-mail
The West Virginia House of Delegates voted 76-24 Tuesday to pass on to the Senate a bill that eliminates the eight Regional Education Services Agencies, the state Office of Education Performance Audits and the mandate that public school year calendars have at least 180 separate instructional days.
RESAs are multi-county agencies that are supposed to aid public schools.
It doesn’t include the $808 statewide teacher pay raise he originally proposed.
