HB17-1062

Making Certain State Assessments Optional

Concerning allowing local education providers to choose whether to administer certain state assessments to students enrolled in specified grades.
Session:
2017 Regular Session
Subject:
Education & School Finance (Pre & K-12)

Under existing law, each local education provider must administer the state assessments in math and English language arts to students enrolled in ninth grade and must administer the state-selected assessment to students enrolled in tenth grade. Each local education provider must also administer a state social studies assessment to students in one elementary-school grade, one middle-school grade, and one high-school grade on a 3-year schedule.

Under the bill, each local education provider may choose whether to administer the state social studies assessments, the ninth-grade math and English language arts state assessments, and the tenth-grade assessment. The bill repeals the requirement that the department of education apply for a waiver to administer the ninth-grade math and English language arts state assessments to satisfy federal requirements.
