TO APPROVE REGULATIONS OF THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION, RELATING TO END-OF-COURSE TESTS, DESIGNATED AS REGULATION DOCUMENT NUMBER 4200, PURSUANT TO THE PROVISIONS OF ARTICLE 1, CHAPTER 23, TITLE 1 OF THE 1976 CODE.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. The regulations of the State Board of Education, relating to End-of-Course Tests, designated as Regulation Document Number 4200, and submitted to the General Assembly pursuant to the provisions of Article 1, Chapter 23, Title 1 of the 1976 Code, are approved.
SECTION 2. This joint resolution takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
The State Board of Education proposes to amend R.43-262.4 in response to requests from parents. Students who take two courses based on the same academic standards for which there is an end-of-course test would take the test for the first course and the score would count as 20% of the final grade. If the student passes the first course, the second course would not be a gateway course for that student. The student would not take an end-of-course test for the second course and the student's final grade would be calculated without an end-of-course score.
A Notice of Drafting was published in the State Register on July 22, 2011.
