14 DE Admin. Code 621
The Secretary of Education seeks to repeal 14 DE Admin. Code 621 District and School Emergency Preparedness Policy. The regulation is being repealed to eliminate confusion for districts and charter schools in terms of policy to follow with regard to emergency preparedness. These entities are to comply with 29 Del.C. §8237, otherwise known as the Omnibus School Safety Act (OSSA) and therefore this regulation is no longer needed.
Notice of the proposed regulation was published in the News Journal and the Delaware State News on March 1, 2016, in the form hereto attached as Exhibit "A". Comments were received from the Governor's Advisory Council for Exceptional Citizens and the State Council for Persons with Disabilities in support of the regulation being repealed.
The Secretary finds that it is appropriate to repeal 14 DE Admin. Code 621 District and School Emergency Preparedness Policy in order to eliminate confusion for districts and charter schools in terms of policy to follow with regard to emergency preparedness. These entities are to comply with 29 Del.C. §8237, otherwise known as the Omnibus School Safety Act (OSSA) and therefore this regulation is no longer needed.
For the foregoing reasons, the Secretary concludes that it is appropriate to repeal 14 DE Admin. Code 621 District and School Emergency Preparedness Policy. Therefore, pursuant to 14 Del.C. §122, 14 DE Admin. Code 621 District and School Emergency Preparedness Policy attached hereto as Exhibit "B" is hereby repealed. Pursuant to the provision of 14 Del.C. §122(e), 14 DE Admin. Code 621 District and School Emergency Preparedness Policy hereby repealed shall be in effect for a period of five years from the effective date of this order as set forth in Section V. below.
The text of 14 DE Admin. Code 621 District and School Emergency Preparedness Policy repealed hereby shall be in the form attached hereto as Exhibit "B", and said regulation shall be cited as 14 DE Admin. Code 621 District and School Emergency Preparedness Policy in the Administrative Code of Regulations for the Department of Education.
The actions hereinabove referred to were taken by the Secretary pursuant to 14 Del.C. §122 on April 21, 2016. The effective date of this Order shall be ten (10) days from the date this Order is published in the Delaware Register of Regulations.
IT IS SO ORDERED the 21st day of April 2016.
