   105 ILCS 5/2-3.25d        from Ch. 122, par. 2-3.25d

        Amends the School Code.   Provides  that  only  scores  on  State      
   assessments  of  students enrolled in a school on or before November 1      
   of the school year in which a State assessment is given shall be  used      
   in  determining  whether  a  school  is  placed  on the Early Academic      
   Warning List or an  academic  watch  list.   Provides  that  mandatory      
   make-up  testing  must  occur  on designated make-up testing dates for      
   State assessments. Requires a school district to maintain a file  that      
   contains  the names of students who were not tested and statements for      
   these students that explain why they were not tested.   Provides  that      
   beginning  in  the 2001-2002 school year, the State Board of Education      
   shall not make significant changes in the design of State  assessments      
   for  a  minimum  of  5  school  years.  Makes changes concerning State      
   assessment information on a school district's report card.   Effective      
        HOUSE AMENDMENT NO. 1.                                                 
        Instead of exempting  certain  students  in  bilingual  education      
   programs from State tests, provides that school personnel may consider      
   not  giving  the  Illinois  Standards  Achievement Test or the Prairie      
   State  Achievement  Examination  to  such  students.   Requires  these      
   students to participate in State assessments  developed  for  students      
   with  limited  English  proficiency  (instead  of requiring the school      
   district to have an alternative  test  program).   Provides  that  the      
   State  Board  of  Education  shall  annually  notify  districts of the      
   specific  dates   on   which   (instead   of   weeks   during   which)      
   administrations  of  the  Prairie State Achievement Examination are to      
   occur.  Makes other changes.
