12:44 PM -- HB16-1016
Senator Kerr presented House Bill 16-1016 to the committee. This bill, as amended in the House Education Committee, creates the Student Academic Growth Measures Grant program in the Colorado Department of Education to assist local education providers (LEPs, i.e. school districts, charter schools, Boards of Cooperative Educational Services) to develop and apply multiple measures of student academic growth. Grants will be used by LEPs to develop multiple ways to measure student academic growth that supplement summative statewide assessments, and to make recommendations to the State Board of Education and the General Assembly on ways to include multiple measures of student academic growth as performance indicators in the state's public education accountability system.
The bill was laid over for action later in the meeting.
