Staff Analysis of the Legislation

HB 713, Nix – 69

Delays the required implementation of the pathways, courses related to a specific trade or vocation, in the high school curriculum by one year, to fall 2013. A minimum course of study for college and career readiness shall be available K-12.  A post secondary readiness assessment to be done in grade 10 and remediation will be offered those that have not yet mastered understanding.  Author sponsored the original legislation, HB 186 in 2011 and is responding to the wishes of the State School Superintendent.  With pathways, the high school graduation rule will have to be changed, and that can’t be finished until the pathways are all approved.
