Concerning criteria applied in determining performance ratings for entities in the elementary and secondary public education system, and, in connection therewith, making an appropriation.

For purposes of determining the level of attainment for accreditation of each public high school, each school district, the state charter school institute, and the state as a whole on the postsecondary and workforce readiness performance indicator, the bill adds additional measures of the percentage of students who successfully complete:


  • An advanced placement course in a subject other than English language arts or math and earn a score of 3 or higher on the end-of-course advanced placement exam;
  • A concurrent enrollment course in a subject other than English language arts or math and earn a grade of 'B' or higher in the course; and
  • An international baccalaureate course in a subject other than English language arts or math and earn a score of 4 or higher.

The bill appropriates $30,000 to the department of education for information technology services to implement the bill.

(Note: This summary applies to the reengrossed version of this bill as introduced in the second house.)
