HB 538 (2015) relative to the implementation of new statewide education annual assessments.
House/Senate Bill: House
Description: Slightly revises the duty of the legislative committee oversee statewide education assessments, and allows school districts to continue to administer an existing statewide assessment for up to two years following the state Board of Education’s recommendation or implementation of a new annual statewide assessment. The Department of Education notes the proposed legislation is unclear regarding who would be responsible for costs associated with the continuance of the existing assessment, or if the existing assessment would be conducted in parallel with the newly implemented or recommended assessment.
