Department of Education, Central Office Operations


Page 107, strike lines 34 through 38, and insert:

"G. The department shall compile possible growth model options, including both descriptive and value-added growth and projection analytics, and prior to selecting an approach shall report to the Commission on the Future of Elementary and Secondary Education.  Out of this appropriation, $500,000 the first year may not be committed or expended until approved by the Commission.".


(This amendment removes language directing the department to develop a growth scale for the Standards of Learning mathematics and reading assessments, and requires the department to report its comprehensive evaluation of all possible options prior to proceeding.)
