Standards of Accreditation. Adds high school graduation rates, the rate of student academic progress in all student subgroups identified pursuant to the federal Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, P.L. 89-10, as amended, and progress toward narrowing gaps in student proficiency on Standards of Learning assessments among all student subgroups to the list of special school division accomplishments that the Board of Education shall consider in its criteria for recognizing educational performance. The bill also prohibits the Board from identifying a school as fully accredited if any such student subgroup in the school fails to demonstrate proficiency on any Standards of Learning assessment. The bill finally alters the objectives of Standards of Learning Assessments. The bill contains technical amendments. Read the Bill »
