ITEM:  Clarification HB 1674 Notice from 2/21/2018

Hi folks,

I need to make a few clarifications and provide additional information on the notice I sent out regarding HB 1674 via ET News on February 21.

*         HB 1674 does not remove 306.42 or 306.47 from the minimum standards.  The proposed removal of the specific reference numbers for rules in RSA 193-E:3-b is being considered for all of the subjects.  The rationale for this is that the legislation should come first, and the rules are created or amended in response to the legislation.  So, it's backwards for the legislation to reference specific rules.

*         If HB 1674 passes, it could necessitate updates to the 306 rules, but there is no intent to remove or drastically alter the existing ICT Literacy (306.42) or Technology Education (306.47) standards.  If the rules are to be reviewed and/or amended, there will be ample opportunity for stakeholder engagement, and more information will be distributed via this list and other NHDOE communication channels.

*         Information on HB 1674 can be found here: http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/bill_status/Results.aspx?q=1&txtsessionyear=2018. Find the text of the bill at http://www.gencourt.state.nh.us/bill_status/billText.aspx?sy=2018&id=1454&txtFormat=html.
