(a) Rulemaking
(1) In general
Each State that receives funds under this subchapter shall—

(B) minimize such rules, regulations, and policies to which the State’s local educational agencies and schools are subject;
(C) eliminate or modify State and local fiscal accounting requirements in order to facilitate the ability of schools to consolidate funds under schoolwide programs; and
(D) identify any such rule, regulation, or policy as a State-imposed requirement.
(2) Support and facilitation
State rules, regulations, and policies under this subchapter shall support and facilitate local educational agency and school-level systemic reform designed to enable all children to meet the challenging State student academic achievement standards.
(b) Committee of practitioners
(1) In general
Each State educational agency that receives funds under this subchapter shall create a State committee of practitioners to advise the State in carrying out its responsibilities under this subchapter.
