Synopsis As Introduced Amends the School Code. Provides that, before the 30th day of each school year, beginning with the 2016-2017 school year, the principal of each public school shall report to the State Board of Education certain information concerning the administration of assessments to students. Requires the State Board of Education to compile the reported information and make that information available to the public. Requires each school to make that information publicly available to the parents and guardians of its students. Effective January 1, 2016.
House Committee Amendment No. 1 Requires every school district, for each of its schools, to report the assessment information (instead of the principal of each public school reporting the information). Requires the reporting of every reliable assessment that measures a certain group or subset of students in the same manner with the same potential assessment items, is scored by a non-district entity, is administered either statewide or beyond Illinois, and will be administered by each school that school year (instead of reporting every Type I and Type II assessment, as defined by rule of the State Board of Education, the school will be administering that school year).
