Your Committee on Education, to which was referred S.B. No. 2381, S.D. 2, entitled:
"A BILL FOR AN ACT RELATING TO SCHOOL CLOSURES,"

The purpose of this measure is to authorize a school's principal to close the school without consulting the complex area superintendent in the event of an emergency created by a natural disaster and the principal deems the conditions unsafe for students and faculty.
Your Committee has amended this measure by:
(1) Changing its effective date to July 1, 2050; and
(2) Making a technical, nonsubstantive amendment for clarity and style.
As affirmed by the record of votes of the members of your Committee on Education that is attached to this report, your Committee is in accord with the intent and purpose of S.B. No. 2381, S.D. 2, as amended herein, and recommends that it pass Second Reading in the form attached hereto as S.B. No. 2381, S.D. 2, H.D. 1, and be referred to your Committee on Finance.
Respectfully submitted on behalf of the members of the Committee on Education,
