This bill would make procedural changes with regard to the indicators of achievement used in school evaluations. In addition, this bill would put in place new requirements for the approval or rejection of a campus turnaround plan and would require state assistance in creating a plan upon the rejection of a submitted turnaround plan.
We opposed this bill in the House because it would have diminished personal responsibility by allowing failing school districts to skirt accountability. As substituted by the Senate, this bill is now largely procedural in nature and the offending provisions are no longer contained in the bill. We have revised our position to neutral.
