The College Entrance Examination requirement, under Idaho Code 08.02.03.105.03, is effective for all public school students in their 11th grade year, beginning with the 2011-2012 school year. A student must take one (1) exam (COMPASS, ACCUPLACER, ACT or SAT) to meet the requirement. Students may elect an exemption from the college entrance exam requirement if they are enrolled in a special education program and have an Individual Education Plan (IEP) that specifies accommodations not allowed for a reportable score on the approved tests; or enrolled in an Limited English Proficient (LEP) program for three (3) academic years or less.
Beginning the 2014-2015 school year, the College Entrance Examination requirement will undergo several changes. The ACCCUPLACER Placement will only be available to a select group of students, transfer students have been addressed in the code, and an exemption has been added for those out-of-state seniors who enroll in an Idaho public school after the SAT, state funded, senior make-up day has occurred. For full details on the changes, please view the recorded webinar and documents below.
Presented by Alison Lowenthal, Secondary Special Education Coordinator, and Nichole Hall, College Entrance Exam Coordinator, this webinar will also provide participants with information on accommodation requests and exemptions for students
