Title 4 . Education and Early Development
Chapter 6 . (Repealed)
Section 820. Participation

4 AAC 06.820. Participation

(a) For a school, a district, or the state public school system to satisfy the requirements for participation in state assessments, at least 95 percent of the students, and 95 percent of the students in each subgroup consisting of more than 20 students, enrolled on the first day of testing in grades 3 - 10, must participate in a state assessment in that year, or student participation must average 95 percent for two or three consecutive years that include that year. However, if a school has 40 or fewer students, or a subgroup has more than 20 but no more than 40 students enrolled in grades 3 - 10, the requirements for participation are satisfied if no more than two students from that school or subgroup do not participate in a state assessment. For purposes of this section, a student participates in a state assessment if the student receives a valid test score on one of the required state assessments.

(b) A school or district may not systematically exclude students from assessment.

(c) Students who are eligible to take the alternate assessment under 4 AAC 06.775(b) will be included in calculating the participation rate under (a) of this section, even if more than one percent of the students in a district or the state public school system take the alternate assessment, if the students are

(1) in a grade in which the alternate assessment is offered; and

(2) enrolled on the first day of testing.
