Summary:
Study; development of an education cooperative in Hampton Roads. Establishes a special study panel to study the feasibility of developing an education cooperative in Hampton. The special study panel will consist of the superintendents and the chairmen of the school boards or their designees of the Cities of Norfolk, Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Newport News, Hampton, and Poquoson, and the County of Southampton. The superintendents and the chairmen of the school boards of other school divisions in the Hampton Roads area may also be included on the special study panel, upon request. The Superintendent of Public Instruction or his designee shall also serve on this panel. The special study panel will evaluate the issues related to implementation of an education cooperative and shall: (i) identify local needs and issues; (ii) examine possible solutions for such local needs and issues which could be developed through a regional effort; (iii) identify any local policy differences which need to be resolved prior to implementation of an education cooperative; (iv) develop agreement on how to resolve these local policy differences; (v) identify legal barriers to the formation of an education cooperative and the steps to resolve any such legal barriers; and (vi) identify the services and programs which would most appropriately be the subject of any such regional cooperative. The special study panel must provide at least a preliminary report of its study to the Chairmen of the Senate Committees on Education and Finance and the House Committees on Appropriations and Education by November 1, 1997.
