Senate File 423: New Options for PSEO Readiness
Sponsors:
Senate Education Committee
Summary:

Current law only permits homeschool students to qualify to take college courses under the Post-Secondary Enrollment option if they take and pass a state academic assessment. SF 423 allows homeschool students to demonstrate their readiness instaead by specific scores on the PSAT, ACT or SAT.

HSLDA's Position:

HSLDA supports this bill, but we would strongly prefer the bill to be amended so that college course readiness can also be established by the annual CPI year-end assessment. Proposed amendment S-3145 would accomplish this.

Action Requested:
Status:

03/03/2011 (Senate) Introduced, placed on calendar
03/31/2011 (Senate) Referred back to Education

This bill did not exit the Senate before the session ended, and is now dead.
