Posted: January 14, 2013
Star staff report
Frederick County Public Schools is again providing its staff and the community with a means to follow bills in the 2013 General Assembly that could impact the school system.
This year’s General Assembly session convened Jan. 9.
“Each year the state legislature considers a number of bills that could impact public education,” FCPS Superintendent David Sovine said.
“Offering a Web page devoted to highlighting those proposals provides interested citizens with a means to learn about the bills that have been proposed and track their progress through the General Assembly.”
The site also includes contact information for the delegates and the state senator who represent Frederick County.
A link to the FCPS 2013 General Assembly Web page is available on the Frederick County Public Schools’ home page at www.frederick.k12.va.us.
The page includes basic information about the General Assembly, the process by which a bill becomes a law, and a brief synopsis of the bills proposed in the 2013 General Assembly that may impact public schools.
By clicking on any of the bill numbers listed on the Web page, visitors can receive additional information about the bill and its current status.
This is the third consecutive year that FCPS has maintained a Web page focused on education-related bills under consideration in the General Assembly.
