Act 999 of 1999, the Arkansas Comprehensive Testing, Assessment and Accountability Program (ACTAAP), requires that school personnel develop a Student Academic Improvement Plan for the following students:
· Students not performing on grade level in literacy and/or math in grades K-4
· Students not scoring at the proficient level on any part of any Benchmark Examination (Primary, Intermediate, Middle Level)
· Students not scoring at the proficient level on the End-of-Course Examinations (Literacy, Geometry, Algebra I)
Attached is a model Student Academic Improvement Plan. This plan, or a similar plan having the same information, may be used for individual students or a group of students having the same deficiencies.
Copies of the Student Academic Improvement Plans shall be maintained by the appropriate teachers to insure full implementation of the intervention/remediation plan. These documents shall be used by the school in creating and revising its comprehensive school improvement plan and shall be monitored by the Arkansas Department of Education.
Legislation requiring the Student Academic Improvement Plan became effective beginning in the 1999-2000 school year.
