TO APPROVE REGULATIONS OF THE STATE BOARD OF EDUCATION, RELATING TO ASSESSMENT PROGRAM, DESIGNATED AS REGULATION DOCUMENT NUMBER 4604, 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 Assessment Program, designated as Regulation Document Number 4604, 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.
Section 59-18-310 of the Education Accountability Act requires end-of-course tests for gateway courses awarded units of credit in English/language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Proposed amendments to Section H of Regulation 43-262, End-of-Course Examination Program (EOCEP), are to permit the State Board of Education to define the courses in which end-of-course tests must be administered and permits the SCDE to work directly with districts concerning testing specific students when unusual circumstances arise.
Notice of Drafting for the proposed amendment of this regulation was published in the State Register on August 28, 2015.
