Bulletin 111―The Louisiana School, District, and State Accountability System―Inclusion of Alternate Assessment Results (LAC 28:LXXXIII.3905)

In accordance with R.S. 49:950 et seq., the Administrative Procedure Act, the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education amended Bulletin 111The Louisiana School, District, and State Accountability System (LAC 28, Part Number LXXXIII). Act 478 of the 1997 Regular Legislative Session called for the development of an accountability system for the purpose of implementing fundamental changes in classroom teaching by helping schools and communities focus on improved student achievement. The state's accountability system is an evolving system with different components that are required to change in response to state and federal laws and regulations. The amendments to Bulletin 111 §3905 will provide for an increase in index points assigned to students who score Approaching Basic and Basic on the LAA 2 test. The index points previously assigned to those achievement levels were 50 and 100 respectively and now it is proposed that the index points would change to 100 and 150 respectively.
