Item 145 #17c

Direct Aid to Public Education


Page 169, after line 27, insert:

"31. Beginning in the second year, multidivision online providers, as defined in § 22.1-212.23, Code of Virginia, shall provide certain data as prescribed by the Department of Education related to students enrolled through a contract between such a provider and a school division, including such students who do not reside in the school division that is party to the contract. Such data shall include, but is not limited to, enrollment, which shall be disaggregated by serving school, demographics, attendance, achievement, and achievement gaps, and be transmitted in a format prescribed by the Department. The Department shall report such data annually through the School Quality Profiles in a manner that clearly disaggregates and communicates school quality information related to (i) the students that do not reside in the school division and are served through the contract, and (ii) all other students."


(This amendment directs the Department of Education to present information on its School Quality Profiles in a manner that does not commingle (i) students enrolled in a school through a multidivision online provider and residing outside of the enrolling school division, and (ii) all other students. This would ensure that the public reporting information for traditional public schools accurately reflects the student body that physically attends such traditional public schools.)
