Bill description: HB 693 would allow school districts and charter schools to administer local student-reading proficiency assessments in lieu of the reading assessments that are currently administered statewide.

Rating: +1

Does it create, expand, or enlarge any agency, board, program, function, or activity of government? Conversely, does it eliminate or curtail the size or scope of government? 


HB 693 would provide local school districts and charter schools more flexibility to administer student-reading assessments or teacher evaluations that work best for their students. Currently, schools are required to utilize the assessments administered by the State Board of Education. These assessments are used to test students through third grade, to test the student’s fluency, comprehension, and accuracy of their reading.

HB 693 could increase educational outcomes by allowing school districts and charter schools the ability to use assessments or have their teachers evaluate students in a manner that works best for their schools and their students,
