Title: Ensuring K-3 Literacy Education
Custom SummaryBeginning with the 2013-14 school year, each local education provider will begin assessing students in each of the early grades and diagnosing students' specific reading skill deficiencies. If a student has a reading deficiency or a significant reading deficiency, the student's teacher will notify the student's parent and invite the parent to participate with the teacher in creating a Reading To Ensure Academic Development plan (READ plan) for the student.

If the student is finishing third grade and the parent, teacher, and other personnel decide the student will advance to fourth grade even though the student has a significant reading deficiency, the decision is subject to approval by the superintendent of the school district. A student who does not advance to the next grade level must receive increased reading intervention instruction and supports to improve his or her reading competency during the year in which he or she does not advance. The Department of Education will administer an early literacy grant program to provide money to applying local education providers to implement literacy support and intervention instruction programs to assist students in kindergarten and first through third grades to achieve reading competency. The bill also expands the state district and school accountability plan to include performance on early literacy.

CommentBeginning no later than the 2013-14 school year, each local education provider will begin assessing students in each of the early grades and diagnosing students' specific reading skill deficiencies. If a student has a reading deficiency or a significant reading deficiency, the student's teacher will notify the student's parent and invite the parent to participate with the teacher in creating a Reading To Ensure Academic Development plan (READ plan) for the student. If, at the end of a school year, a student has a significant reading deficiency, the statute recommends that the student only advance to the next grade level if he or she can succeed regardless of their reading deficiency. The school will send the student's parent written notice that the teacher, the parent, and other personnel from the local education provider must meet to decide whether the student will advance. If the student is finishing third grade and the parent, teacher, and other personnel decide the student will advance to fourth grade even though the student has a significant reading deficiency, the decision is subject to approval by the superintendent of the school district.

Bill: SB12-145
Title: Cap 2011-12 School Land Revenues Transfers
Custom SummaryCurrent law provides that all interest and income earned on the investment of moneys in the Public School Fund, except interest and income transferred to the BEST program, is to be transferred to the Public School Fund through the 2012-13 fiscal year. The bill caps the 2011-12 fiscal year transfer to the Public School Fund at $15 million and ensures that for the 2011-12 fiscal year, after the transfer to BEST, remaining interest and income from the Permanent School Fund remain in the fund and become part of the principal. Current law provides that public school land revenues, except for some transfers to the State Land Board and BEST, be transferred into the Public School Fund instead of being deposited in the permanent fund. The bill caps the 2011-12 fiscal year transfer to the Public School Fund at $21 million and ensures that, for the 2011-12 state fiscal year, after transfers to the land board and BEST, revenues are to be deposited into the permanent fund.
