Summary

The recommendations presented here are the products of a six-month project aimed at identifying state mandates that limit the discretion of local school boards and school administrators in Pennsylvania. The department of education in Pennsylvania first analyzed the cost of these mandates in dollars and in decreased local control of education; it then proposed mechanisms for returning decision-making authority to local school officials. The subjects of the recommended changes range widely from special education rules for identifying gifted students to physical education regulations affecting all students, from planning requirements for school construction to procedures for suspending disruptive students, and from the reporting of student attendance to the furlough of professional employees. Each mandate analyzed was singled out as unnecessarily costly or overly restrictive by school superintendents, school board presidents, or both. Twenty-one burdensome mandates are identified in this report; for each mandate the document includes a statement of the problem, the statutory source of the mandate, mechanisms for change, a discussion, and a recommendation for relief.
