SB 410, Williams – 19
Evaluation of schools, resulting in grading of schools with a numerical grade on student achievement and uses 1-5 stars each for financial efficiency and school climate grades. Financial awards may be awarded subject to appropriations for closing the achievement gap. Encodes into statute the waiver that DOE has received from the feds for the CCRPI, College and Career Ready Performance Index.
