85(R) - 2017
Relating to the scheduling of the administration of certain postsecondary readiness assessment instruments to public high school students.
No significant fiscal implication to the state is anticipated.
SB 384 would amend the Education Code so that the State
Board of Education would be required to make all reasonable efforts to schedule
end-of-course assessment instruments not to conflict with the administration of
a nationally recognized assessment instrument, exam, or test administered by
higher education institutions to award course credit based on performance.
Vote Recommendation Notes
This bill enhances our individual liberty principles by making it easier for students to balance normal school requirements along with earning college credits. We support SB 384.
