The Board of Education shall administer each applicable diagnostic assessment developed and provided to the District by the State Board of Education in accordance with O.R.C. §3301.079 to the following:
A. Each student enrolled in a building that fails to make adequate yearly progress for two consecutive school years;
B. Any student who transfers into the District or to a different school within the District, within thirty days after the date of transfer;
C. Each Kindergarten student within six weeks after the first day of school. For this purpose, the District shall administer the Kindergarten readiness assessment provided by the State Department of Education; and
D. Each student enrolled in first or second grade.
The Board shall administer each diagnostic assessment at least once annually to all students in the appropriate grade level. The Superintendent or designee may administer any diagnostic assessment in the fall and spring of any school year in order to measure the amount of academic growth attributable to the instruction received by students during that school year.
Any diagnostic assessment administered shall be utilized and scored in accordance with rules established by the State Department of Education. After the administration of any diagnostic assessment, a student’s completed diagnostic assessment, the results of the assessment, and any other accompanying documents used during the administration of the assessment shall be provided to the parent of the student upon request.
If the District made adequate yearly progress as defined in O.R.C. §3302.01 in the immediately preceding school year, it may assess student progress in grades one through eight using a diagnostic assessment other than one developed and provided by the State Board of Education.
Intervention services shall be provided to students whose diagnostic assessments show that they are failing to make satisfactory progress toward attaining the academic standards for their grade level.
