AN ACT prohibiting the inclusion of statewide assessment results in a student's transcript without consent.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

16:1  Statewide Improvement and Assessment Program; Assessment Required.  Amend RSA 193-C:6 to read as follows:

193-C:6  Assessment Required.  Each year, a statewide assessment shall be administered in all school districts in the state in grades 3 through 8 and one grade in high school.  All public school students in the designated grades shall participate in the assessment, unless such student is exempted, or provided that the commissioner of the department of education may, through an agreement with another state when such state and New Hampshire are parties to an interstate agreement, allow pupils to participate in that state's assessment program as an alternative to the assessment required under this chapter.  Home educated students may contact their local school districts if they wish to participate in the statewide assessment.  Private schools may contact the department of education to participate in the statewide assessment.  The department may use the College Board SAT or ACT college readiness assessment to satisfy the high school assessment requirements of this chapter.  The statewide assessment results of a student or the student's school district shall not be included as part of the student's transcript unless the student, if 18 years of age or older, or the student's parent or legal guardian if the student is under 18 years of age, consents.

16:2  Effective Date.  This act shall take effect 60 days after its passage.

 

Approved: April 17, 2017
