Developmental education placement or assessment tests
- intervention plans
(1)Each institute charter school that includes any of grades nine through twelve may administer to students enrolled in those grades the developmental education placement or assessment tests that are administered to matriculated first-time freshman students pursuant to section 23-1-113. The institute charter school may administer the tests to a student at any time and as often as it deems necessary while the student is enrolled in any of grades nine through twelve, but the department of education shall allocate money to each institute charter school to offset the costs incurred in administering each of the test units only once per student while he or she is enrolled in those grades.
(2)If an institute charter school chooses to administer the developmental education placement or assessment tests, each student’s individual career and academic plan must include the scores achieved by the student on the developmental education placement or assessment tests and, based on an analysis of the scores, the student’s level of postsecondary and workforce readiness at the time he or she takes the tests. If a student’s scores indicate that he or she is at risk of being unable to demonstrate postsecondary and workforce readiness prior to or upon graduating from high school, school personnel shall work with the student and the student’s parent or legal guardian to create an intervention plan that identifies the necessary courses and education support services the student requires to be able to achieve postsecondary and workforce readiness prior to or upon graduating from high school and to be prepared to continue into the postsecondary education option, if any, selected by the student in his or her individual career and academic plan without need for remedial educational services. If appropriate, the school, the student, and the student’s parent or legal guardian may choose to enroll the student in gateway courses in English or mathematics, as defined in section 23-1-113 (11)(b.5), with additional supports through supplemental academic instruction, as defined in section 23-1-113 (11)(e), at an institution of higher education through the “Concurrent Enrollment Programs Act”, article 35 of this title 22.
