Board Readies for Legislative Session

The Utah State Board of Education continued to review and refine its budget and policy priorities. The Board voted to increase its budget request for the Center for Continuous School Improvement by $111,100 to $1,780,500. The Board also reviewed Governor’s Spencer J. Cox’s budget recommendations compared with their own. The Board also agreed to ask the Legislature to appropriate $3,375,000 from a settlement with Questar Assessment Inc. for a FY2022 supplemental appropriation to the Board for the purpose of assessments.

The Board will seek one additional statutory change:

Amend 53F-2-102(4)(d) to waive the current 90-day notice requirement for two years and replace it with a requirement to provide “reasonable” notice related to a district’s or charter school’s authority to convert up to four instructional (educational service) days for professional learning or educator preparation time.
