Announcement: 1.0% Cap Waiver Extension Request Open for Public Comment
Title 1 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, as amended by the Every Student Succeeds Act of 2015 states that the total number of students assessed in each subject using an alternate assessment may not exceed 1.0% of the total number of students in the State who are assessed in each subject. In the 2017-18 school year, Idaho again exceeded the 1.0% cap on Idaho Alternate Assessment (IDAA) participation in ELA (1.1%), Mathematics (1.2%), and Science (1.1%). Based on these data, the SDE anticipates that we will exceed the 1.0% cap on IDAA participation again in the 2018-19 school year. As required by the United States Department of Education, Idaho must submit a request for a one-year extension of our 1.0% Cap waiver that was approved last year.
The SDE invites you to review and provide comment on the Idaho 1.0% Cap Waiver Extension Request. The Idaho 1.0% Cap Waiver Extension Request draft will be open for public comment through September 24, 2018. To submit a comment, please complete the online Public Comment Form Regarding the Idaho 1.0% Cap Waiver Extension Request.
Thank you for taking the time to review the Idaho 1.0% Cap Waiver Extension Request and for sharing your feedback.
