Description of Subjects/Issues Due to concerns about the process for parents to excuse students from state assessments, per HB15-1323, at the request of the State Board of Education, the department recommends that the Rules for the Administration of the Accreditation of School Districts (1 CCR 301-1) be amended to specifically address the policies required through state statute.

To codify the assessment provisions in H.B. 15-1323 requiring districts and the institute, as a part of their accreditation contracts, to provide assurances that they will: 1.
