HB16-1016 - Using Multiple Measures Of Student Academic Growth

Postponed Indefinitely
Concerning Using Multiple Measures Of Student Academic Growth, And, In Connection Therewith, Making An Appropriation.

The bill creates a grant program to assist school districts, boards of cooperative services, and charter schools (local education providers) in creating and applying multiple measures of student academic growth to measure the performance of public schools and local education providers and to measure educator effectiveness. A local education provider may apply to receive a grant by providing specified information, including a plan for building the capacity of educators and administrators concerning multiple measures of student academic growth and for developing and implementing a process for creating and applying multiple measures of student academic growth. The local education provider must also agree to an external evaluation of the success of the plan. The state board of education (state board) must adopt rules for awarding the grants. The state board, taking into account recommendations from the department of education (department), must award the grants based on the quality of an applicant's plan and an applicant's level of need. The department must contract with an entity to evaluate each grant recipient's success in creating and applying multiple measures of student academic growth.

The department must annually prepare and submit to the education committees of the general assembly a summary of the evaluations, including an evaluation of whether the multiple measures of student academic growth were effective in measuring the performance of public schools and local education providers and in measuring educator effectiveness and the likelihood of success in applying the multiple measures statewide to measure the performance of public schools and local education providers.
