BILL NUMBER:S2464

TITLE OF BILL: An act to amend the education law, in relation to
requiring the reporting of the results of English/language arts and
mathematics assessments to the person in parental relation to each
elementary school pupil who is so assessed

PURPOSE: Requires elementary schools to report the results of
English/language arts and mathematics assessments to parents of pupils
by the last day of classes.

SUMMARY OF PROVISIONS:

Section one amends the education law by adding new section 3211-b.

Section two is the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION: New York City uses state test scores as a major factor
in determining who must attend summer school. Due to the fact that
test results are not released until after summer school decisions are
made, students are recommended based on preliminary results. In 2012,
32,868 students in New York City were recommended for summer school.
after the state exam results were released, it was discovered that
only 25,834 students scored low enough on the state exam to be
required to go. This bill would rectify this unfortunate situation.

LEGISLATIVE HISTORY: 2012: S.7830 - Referred to Rules

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS: None.

EFFECTIVE DATE: This act shall take effect immediately.
