A BILL TO BE ENTITLED AN ACT TO REQUIRE AN ALTERNATE ACT AND PLAN PRECURSOR TEST FOR CERTAIN STUDENTS.
Amends GS 115C-174.11(c)(4) to provide that the requirement that the State Board of Education (Board) require that the ACT be administered for all students in the 11th grade does not apply to those students enrolled in the Occupational Course of Study or the Extended Course of Study, and allows for the development of an alternative assessment measure. Makes a conforming change to GS 115C-174.22.
Requires the Board to apply to the US Department of Education for an amendment to the federal waiver obtained regarding accountability measures under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, to implement the act.
Statutory changes are effective September 1, 2014, or upon the approval of the required waiver amendment, whichever occurs earlier.
