The bill proposes an amendment to Chapter 16-22 of the General Laws, specifically adding a new section that allows cities and towns to create municipal ordinances for specially designed physical education instruction. This instruction is part of a student's individualized education program (IEP) and would be open to all students who choose to participate as a "partner." A partner is defined as a student who enrolls in the specially designed physical education class to assist another student who requires an IEP. The bill stipulates that partners will receive full credit towards their graduation requirements for participating in the class, and the time spent as a partner will count as an hour of education as required by ยง 16-22-4.

Furthermore, the bill outlines that participation as a partner is subject to eligibility and approval by the individual school administration. It also authorizes the department of education to promulgate rules and regulations necessary to implement the purposes of this section. The act would take effect immediately upon passage. There are no deletions indicated in the provided text of the bill.
