SB 28 - The State Board of Education must develop a simplified annual school report card for each school attendance center. Each school, including each charter school, will be given a letter grade of A, B, C, D or F based on percentages identified in the act that corresponds to the percentage of points earned on the school's annual performance report. Alternative schools will not receive a report card unless they specifically request one. Grades will not be assigned to schools if the number of students tested is smaller than the minimum sample size necessary based on professional practices for statistical reliability. The report card must also identify each school's performance as having improved, remained the same, or declined based on the prior year in terms of the letter grade and value.
This act is identical to a provision contained in SB 27 (2015) and is substantially similar to a provision contained in SB 521 (2014) and is similar to a provision contained in SB 408 (2013).
