(a) In order to implement Part 1A of Article 8 of this Chapter, local school administrative
units shall identify students who are at risk for academic failure and who are not
successfully progressing toward grade promotion and graduation, beginning in kindergarten. Identification shall occur as early as can reasonably be done and can be based on
grades, observations, diagnostic and formative assessments, State assessments, and
other factors, including reading on grade level, that impact student performance that
teachers and administrators consider appropriate, without having to await the results
of end-of-grade or end-of-course tests.
(b) Local boards of education shall adopt policies that direct school improvement
teams to develop plans to include successful transition between elementary and middle
school years and between the middle school and high school years for students at risk,
as defined by the State Board of Education.
