Citations Affected: IC 20-1; IC 20-8.1; IC 20-10.1; IC 20-10.2.

Synopsis: High ability students and student tracking. Conference committee report for ESB 292. Requires: (1) the education roundtable to include a representative of education programs for exceptional learners (children with disabilities and high ability students); (2) the department of education to provide grants to school corporations to carry out plans for high ability students who meet certain criteria; and (3) a school corporation's strategic and continuous school improvement plan to address the needs of all students, including exceptional learners. Requires a school corporation to review its programs to determine whether certain practices have the effect of systematically separating students by race, color, creed, national origin, or socioeconomic class. (This conference committee report removes language providing a method that allows school corporations to count the number of course credit hours attributable to individual teachers for purposes of determining teachers' salaries, compensation, and other benefits.)
