State Laws Regarding Education Reform, Assessment, and Accountability in Washington State.
Bergeson, Terry; Kanikeberg, Ken; Butts, Robert
This document combines in one place the provisions of Washington State law that provide the legal framework for "education reform." Due to the nature in which Washington State laws are "codified" in statute and to the comprehensiveness of education reform, the laws regarding education reform are scattered throughout the Revised Code of Washington. Changes have been made to the education reform law almost every year. Chapters include: (1) Major Changes for the 2000-2001 School Year; (2) Intent Section: Engrossed Substitute House Bill 1209; (3) Basic Education Goals; (4) Basic Values and Character Traits; (5) Essential Learnings and Assessments; (6) Accountability Commission; (7) Statewide Reporting of Assessment Results; (8) District Reading and Math Goal Setting; (9) Annual School Performance Reports; (10) Private and Home School Students Not Required to Participate; (11) Other State Assessments; (12) Flexibility Provisions; (13) Consolidated Planning; (14) Capacity-Building Provisions; and (15) Legislative Oversight. Because of the changes made in 2000, the 1999 version of this document is no longer current and should not be used. This updated version will be applicable through the 2000-01 school year. (RT)
