Sec. 2. 20-A MRSA 12709, sub- 10-A is enacted to read:
This bill requires that all students in grade 10 in a public school, public charter school or private school approved for tuition that enrolls at least 60% publicly funded students complete an academic achievement assessment established by the Department of Education and the State Board of Education. The President of the Maine Community College System must determine the scores on the assessment that conclusively indicate that a student will not need to enroll in remedial coursework while attending a college within the system. If a student whose score indicates that remedial coursework is required is accepted at and enrolls in a college within the system, the college must pay the costs of any remedial coursework the student may need to complete in the course of study declared at matriculation.
