SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION NO. 106
BY EDUCATION COMMITTEE
1 A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION
2 STATING FINDINGS OF THE LEGISLATURE AND AUTHORIZING THE LEGISLATIVE COUNCIL TO
3 APPOINT A COMMITTEE TO UNDERTAKE AND COMPLETE A STUDY OF ALL LAWS, RULES,
4 PROCEDURES AND PRACTICES THAT HINDER THE SUCCESS OF TEACHERS AND STUDENTS
5 FROM ACHIEVING THE ACHIEVEMENT STANDARDS.
6 Be It Resolved by the Legislature of the State of Idaho:
7 WHEREAS, the Idaho Legislature has adopted grade level standards in lan-
8 guage arts, math, science, social studies and health for grades K-12; and
9 WHEREAS, the State Board of Education has begun the process to develop
10 assessment instruments to test students at all levels and disciplines to
11 determine how well they have met the standards; and
12 WHEREAS, students, teachers, schools and school districts will be judged
13 by how well students perform on these assessment instruments; and
14 WHEREAS, students, teachers, schools and school districts will be held
15 accountable for student achievement of these standards; and
16 WHEREAS, there exist numerous laws, rules, procedures and practices which
17 inhibit the successful achievement of the standards, and limit innovative pro-
18 gram development by teachers and school districts.
19 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED by the members of the First Regular Session
20 of the Fifty-sixth Idaho Legislature, the Senate and the House of Representa-
21 tives concurring therein, that the Legislative Council is authorized to
22 appoint a committee to undertake and complete a study of all laws, rules, pro-
23 cedures and practices that may hinder the success of teachers and students
24 from attaining the achievement standards. The committee shall seek to identify
25 all roadblocks and address appropriate changes to facilitate and promote
26 school success. The Legislative Council shall determine the number of legisla-
27 tors and membership from each house appointed to the committee and shall
28 authorize the committee to receive input, advice and assistance from inter-
29 ested and affected parties who are not members of the legislature.
30 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that nonlegislative members of the committee may be
31 appointed by the cochairs of the committee who are appointed by the Legisla-
32 tive Council. Nonlegislative members of the advisory committee shall not be
33 reimbursed from legislative funds for per diem, mileage or other expenses and
34 shall not have voting privileges regarding the committee's recommendations or
35 proposed legislation.
36 BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the committee shall report its findings, rec-
37 ommendations and proposed legislation, if any, to the Second Regular Session
38 of the Fifty-sixth Idaho Legislature.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Idaho has adopted achievement standards for grades K-12 in Idaho
public schools. Idaho students and school personnel will soon be
held accountable for meeting these standards.
There are many and varied obstacles that prevent school success.
It is the purpose of this resolution to provide a "vehicle" to
identify the obstacle and make recommendations for their removal.
The fiscal impact would be $10,000 based on the use of an interim
committee of average size and meeting an average number of times.
