Summary:
H.B. 1483, after a minor amendment, was passed and signed by the governor, and will be effective July 1, 2006.

The bill removes the superintendent from determining if a family under Option 4 has shown a program of study or curriculum that includes the SOLs, and allows a family to either send in a curriculum or program of study that includes the SOLs OR provide evidence that the parent is able to provide an adequate education for his child.
