Legislature Green Lights School Assessment Bill

March 1, 2012, 4:50 PM

Legislature Green Lights School Assessment Bill
PIERRE, SD -

The South Dakota Legislature has approved a bill that allows the Department of Education to set a school accountability method that would replace the expectations set by No Child Left Behind.

Senators unanimously passed on Thursday the House's version of the bill on Thursday. The bill would measure public school
achievement using multiple indicators including student growth and college and career readiness.

The federal No Child Left Behind, on the other hand, judges schools based on 100 percent math and reading proficiencies by
2014.  

The final version lacks a financial accountability section that would have required a group of business leaders and educators to
examine how South Dakota schools spend their dollars.

Next the bill goes to Gov. Dennis Daugaard's desk for his signature.
