Every Child Counts Act
Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT) last week as he introduced the Every Child Counts Act last week in the Senate. The bill adds a 1% cap for [State] use of alternate achievement standards and for participation in alternate assessments on alternate achievement standards for students with the most significant cognitive disabilities. The bill is also supported by Ranking Member Patty Murray (D-WA) and is intended to help provide an important addition to the Senate ESEA reauthorization bill.
