BCN, Legislative Updates
  • Senate Bill (SB) 753 (Padilla) requires a school district to annually assess students upon 55% of the instructional year through July 1.
  • Initial assessment upon enrollment
    • If outside AA window, use prior year’s test
    • If inside AA window, use current year’s test
  • While the bill allows “banking” of domain scores, federal law prohibits, so this part of the law will not go into effect until notified otherwise
