Statutory Reference 

The statutory language being implemented is underlined below to use as a reference when providing feedback on the proposed rule. 

Section 1008.34(3)(b)2., F.S., School grading system; school report cards; district grade.:  The percentage of students who were eligible to earn college and career credit through College Board Advanced Placement examinations, International Baccalaureate examinations, dual enrollment courses, including career dual enrollment courses resulting in the completion of 300 or more clock hours during high school which are approved by the state board as meeting the requirements of s. 1007.271, or Advanced International Certificate of Education examinations; who, at any time during high school, earned national industry certification identified in the CAPE Industry Certification Funding List, pursuant to rules adopted by the state board; or, beginning with the 2022-2023 school year, who earned an Armed Services Qualification Test score that falls within Category II or higher on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery and earned a minimum of two credits in Junior Reserve Officers’ Training Corps courses from the same branch of the United States Armed Forces. 

Question Title

* 1. Beginning with the 2021-22 calculation of school grades, schools will receive credit in the College and Career Acceleration component for graduates who complete 300 or more clock hours through approved career dual enrollment courses. This means that clock hour dual enrollment would be included in the 2021-22 school grades based on the 2020-21 graduation cohort; the full impact of this change with four years of implementation for a full graduation cohort would occur with the 2024-25 school grades calculation based on the 2023-24 graduation cohort. For the School Grades released in Summer 2022, we will be looking for Clock Hours earned in 2020-21. For the School Grades released in Summer of 2023, we will look for Clock Hours earned in 2020-21 and 2021-22. This will continue until we can look for Clock Hours earned in all 4 years of the cohort. Do you agree that the proposed language regarding clock hour dual enrollment criteria for the College and Career Acceleration component implements the requirements of s. 1008.34(3)(b)2., F.S.? If you disagree, explain why and provide alternative language below?

Question Title

* 2. Beginning with the 2022-23 calculation of school grades, schools would receive credit in the College and Career Acceleration component of the school grading calculation for graduates who earn an Armed Services Qualification Test score that falls within Category II or higher on the Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery (ASVAB) and at least two credits in JROTC courses from the same branch of the United States Armed Forces. This means that ASVAB/JROTC credit would be included in the 2022-23 school grades based on the 2021-22 graduation cohort. Do you agree that the proposed language regarding ASVAB/JROTC criteria for the College and Career Acceleration component implements the requirements of s. 1008.34(3)(b)2., F.S.? If you disagree, explain why and provide alternative language below?
