Extractions: December 1995 Alternative Learning Environments Insights Summary of Alternative Education Legislation in SEDL's Southwestern Region Arkansas Louisiana Oklahoma Texas Background Information* Act 830 (1991) required school districts to create alternative education programs for students facing difficulties in the regular schools. Act 597 (1995) clarified reporting requirements. In 1993, Act 1288 established the Pygmalion Commission on Nontraditional Education. The group develops proposals for alternative methods of meeting children's educational needs. The members represent many groups involved with children, ranging from local superintendents to state legislators and medical professionals. The governor appoints 14 of the 16 members and the remaining 2 are appointed by the Speaker of the House and the President Pro Tempore of the Senate. Act 671 (1994) required suspended and expelled students to attend an alternative education program beginning in the school year 1995-96. Before the requirement went into effect, Act 102 (1995) added the provision that this requirement is only applicable for students suspended for more than 10 days or expelled. School systems may apply to the State Board of Elementary and Secondary Education on a school year to school year basis for a waiver from these requirements for economic reasons. Although it previously funded programs, Oklahoma passed its first alternative education legislation establishing Alternative Approaches Grants in 1992. These grants award funds to local education agencies or nonprofit organizations for programs serving at-risk students. In 1994, House Bill 2640 required a statewide district needs assessment of alternative education. The state also established Alternative Education Academy Grants for grades 6-12 programs serving high need districts. The state also funds technical assistance centers to recommend programs for funding, provide training and technical assistance, and evaluate grant-funded programs for state validation.

Extractions: While passage rates at East Baton Rouge Parish elementary schools declined this spring, in many cases erasing years of gains, high schools almost all improved their passage rates, according to school-by-school totals for the LEAP 21 and GEE 21 tests released Thursday. Middle schools were split, with most having more students pass math but fewer passing English. The Louisiana Educational Assessment Program for the 21st Century and the related Graduate Exit Exam for the 21st Century tests, both taken in March, are high stakes. In the case of LEAP 21, taken in fourth and eighth grades, students have to pass English and math to advance to fifth and ninth grade. GEE 21 determines graduation from high school. To graduate students have to pass English, math and either science or social studies, starting in the 10th grade. The tests make up about 60 percent of a school's performance score, and go a long way toward determining a school's fate under the state's increasingly tough school accountability system. Schools that fail repeatedly to meet state minimum standards could be taken over and placed under new management.
