CHAPTER 548

SENATE JOINT RESOLUTION NO 7

DIRECTING THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION TO EXTEND THE SCHOOL BUS CONTRACTORS DEADLINE OF NOTIFICATION TO THE STATE BOARD FOR THE IMPENDING ACADEMIC YEAR FROM JANUARY 31 TO APRIL 30.

WHEREAS, it has been the policy of the State Board of Education to require school bus contractors to give notice by January 31 of each year if they plan to discontinue their services the following September; and

WHEREAS, the formula has not been approved by the school bus contractors nor funded by the State.

NOW THEREFORE,

BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the 129th General Assembly of the State of Delaware, the Governor concurring therein, that the State Board of Education is hereby directed to extend to April 30, 1977 the date by which school bus contractors may serve notice if they do not intend to provide services for the school year commencing in September 1977.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that upon passage of this Resolution the Secretary of the Senate shall forward a copy of the Resolution to the State Board of Education.

Approved January 27, 1977.
