JEFFERSON COUNTY — The Jefferson County Board of Education on Wednesday released a resolution that expresses its opposition to Senate Bill 380, which would repel the Alabama College and Career Ready Standards.
The resolution also expresses opposition against Senate Bill 443, which would place a moratorium on adoption of new standards or allow systems to opt out of existing standards.
The resolution goes on to say that the board of education “urges all members of the state senate to oppose both of these initiatives.”
Sen. Scott Beason, R-Gardendale, is the state senator who proposed Senate Bill 380, which would repeal the standards until 2017. The Alabama State Board of Education voted in 2010 to adopt the standards, which apply to English and math.
The Jefferson County School System covers schools in Clay and Pinson.
