  156         (1) It is the intent of the Legislature to facilitate
  157  articulation and seamless integration of the K-20 education
  158  system by building, and sustaining, and strengthening
  159  relationships among K-20 public organizations, between public
  160  and private organizations, and between the education system as a
  161  whole and Florida’s communities. The purpose of building, and
  162  sustaining, and strengthening these relationships is to provide
  163  for the efficient and effective progression and transfer of
  164  students within the education system and to allow students to
  165  proceed toward their educational objectives as rapidly as their
  166  circumstances permit. The Legislature further intends that
  167  articulation policies and budget actions be implemented

  175  guidelines to the Legislature with input from statewide K-20
  176  advisory groups established by the Commissioner of Education and
  177  the Chancellor of the State University System and shall
  178  recommend the policies to the Legislature. The policies shall
  179  relate relating to:
  180         (a) The alignment between the exit requirements of one
  181  education system and the admissions requirements of another
  182  education system into which students typically transfer.
  183         (b) The identification of common courses, the level of
  184  courses, institutional participation in a statewide course
  185  numbering system, and the transferability of credits among such
  186  institutions.
  187         (c) Identification of courses that meet general education
  188  or common degree program prerequisite requirements at public
  189  postsecondary educational institutions.
  190         (d) Dual enrollment course equivalencies.
  191         (e) Articulation agreements.
  192         (3) The Commissioner of Education, in consultation with the
  193  Chancellor of the State University System, shall establish the
  194  Articulation Coordinating Committee which shall make
  195  recommendations related to statewide articulation policies to
  196  the Higher Education Coordination Council, the State Board of
  197  Education, and the Board of Governors. The committee shall
  198  consist of two members each representing the State University
  199  System, the Florida College System, public career and technical
  200  education, public K-12 education, and nonpublic education and
  201  one member representing students. The chair shall be elected
  202  from the membership. The committee shall:
  203         (a) Monitor the alignment between the exit requirements of
  204  one education system and the admissions requirements of another
  205  education system into which students typically transfer and make
  206  recommendations for improvement.
  207         (b) Propose guidelines for interinstitutional agreements
  208  between and among public schools, career and technical education
  209  centers, Florida College System institutions, state
  210  universities, and nonpublic postsecondary institutions.
  211         (c) Annually recommend dual enrollment course and high
  212  school subject area equivalencies for approval by the State
  213  Board of Education and the Board of Governors.
  214         (d) Annually review the statewide articulation agreement
  215  pursuant to s. 1007.23 and make recommendations for revisions.
  216         (e) Annually review the statewide course numbering system,
  217  the levels of courses, and the application of transfer credit
  218  requirements among public and nonpublic institutions
  219  participating in the statewide course numbering system and
  220  identify instances of student transfer and admissions
  221  difficulties.
  222         (f) Annually publish a list of courses that meet common
  223  general education and common degree program prerequisite
  224  requirements at public postsecondary institutions identified
  225  pursuant to s. 1007.25.
  226         (g) Examine statewide data regarding articulation to
  227  identify issues and make recommendations to improve articulation
  228  throughout the K-20 education system.
  229         (h) Recommend roles and responsibilities of public
  230  education entities in interfacing with the single, statewide

  232  to s. 1007.28.
  233         Section 18. Subsection (12) of section 1007.25, Florida
  234  Statutes, is amended to read:

  236  and other degree requirements.—
  237         (12)(a) A public postsecondary educational institution may
  238  not confer an associate in arts or baccalaureate degree upon any
  239  student who fails to successfully complete one of the following
  240  requirements:
  241         1. Achieve a score that meets or exceeds a minimum score on
  242  a nationally standardized examination, as established by the
  243  State Board of Education in conjunction with the Board of
  244  Governors; or
  245         2. demonstrate successful remediation of any academic
  246  deficiencies and achieve a cumulative grade point average of 2.5
  247  or above, on a 4.0 scale, in postsecondary-level coursework
  248  identified by the State Board of Education in conjunction with
  249  the Board of Governors. The Department of Education shall
  250  specify the means by which a student may demonstrate successful
  251  remediation.
  252         (b) Any student who, in the best professional opinion of
  253  the postsecondary educational institution, has a specific
  254  learning disability such that the student cannot demonstrate
  255  successful mastery of one or more of the authorized examinations
  256  but is achieving at the college level in every area despite his
  257  or her disability, and whose diagnosis indicates that further
  258  remediation will not succeed in overcoming the disability, may
  259  appeal through the appropriate dean to a committee appointed by
  260  the president or the chief academic officer for special
  261  consideration. The committee shall examine the evidence of the
  262  student’s academic and medical records and may hear testimony
  263  relevant to the case. The committee may grant a waiver for one
  264  or more of the authorized examinations based on the results of
  265  its review.
  266         (c) Each public postsecondary educational institution
  267  president shall establish a committee to consider requests for
  268  waivers from the requirements in paragraph (a). The committee
  269  shall be chaired by the chief academic officer of the
  270  institution and shall have four additional members appointed by
  271  the president as follows:
  272         1. One faculty member from the mathematics department;
  273         2. One faculty member from the English department;
  274         3. The institutional test administrator; and
  275         4. One faculty member from a department other than English
  276  or mathematics.
  277         (d) Any student who has taken the authorized examinations
  278  and has not achieved a passing score, but has otherwise
  279  demonstrated proficiency in coursework in the same subject area,
  280  may request a waiver from the examination requirement. Waivers
  281  shall be considered only after students have been provided test
  282  accommodations or other administrative adjustments to permit the
  283  accurate measurement of the student’s proficiency in the subject
  284  areas measured by the authorized examinations. The committee
  285  shall consider the student’s educational records and other
  286  evidence as to whether the student should be able to pass the
  287  authorized examinations. A waiver may be recommended to the
  288  president upon a majority vote of the committee. The president
  289  may approve or disapprove the recommendation. The president may
  290  not approve a request that the committee has disapproved. If a
  291  waiver is approved, the student’s transcript shall include a
  292  statement that the student did not meet the requirements of this
  293  subsection and that a waiver was granted.

  297  postsecondary educational institutions; substitute requirements;
  298  rules and regulations.—
  299         (1) Any student with a disability, as defined in s.
  300  1007.02(2), who is otherwise eligible except those students who
  301  have been documented as having intellectual disabilities, shall
  302  be eligible for reasonable substitution for any requirement for
  303  admission into a public postsecondary educational institution
  304  where documentation can be provided that the person’s failure to
  305  meet the admission requirement is related to the disability.
  306         Section 20. Subsection (1) of section 1007.265, Florida
  307  Statutes, is amended to read:
  308         1007.265 Persons with disabilities; graduation, study
  309  program admission, and upper-division entry; substitute
  310  requirements; rules and regulations.—
  311         (1) Any student with a disability, as defined in s.
  312  1007.02(2), in a public postsecondary educational institution,
  313  except those students who have been documented as having
  314  intellectual disabilities, shall be eligible for reasonable
  315  substitution for any requirement for graduation, for admission
  316  into a program of study, or for entry into the upper division
  317  where documentation can be provided that the person’s failure to
  318  meet the requirement is related to the disability and where
  319  failure to meet the graduation requirement or program admission
  320  requirement does not constitute a fundamental alteration in the
  321  nature of the program.
  322         Section 21. Subsection (2) and paragraph (a) of subsection
  323  (4) of section 1008.30, Florida Statutes, are amended to read:
  324         1008.30 Common placement testing for public postsecondary
  325  education.—
  326         (2) The common placement testing program shall include at a
  327  minimum the following: the capacity to diagnose basic
  328  competencies in the areas of English, reading, and mathematics
  329  which are essential to perform college-level work; prerequisite
  330  skills that relate to progressively advanced instruction in
  331  mathematics, such as algebra and geometry; prerequisite skills
  332  that relate to progressively advanced instruction in language
  333  arts, such as English composition and literature; prerequisite
  334  skills which relate to the College Level Academic Skills Test
  335  (CLAST); and provision of test information to students on the
  336  specific deficiencies.
  337         (4)(a) Public postsecondary educational institution
  338  Students who have been identified as requiring additional
  339  preparation pursuant to subsection (1) shall enroll in college
  340  preparatory or other adult education pursuant to s. 1004.93 in
  341  community colleges to develop needed college-entry skills. The
  342  State Board of Education shall specify by rule provisions for
  343  alternative remediation opportunities and retesting policies.
  344  These students shall be permitted to take courses within their
  345  degree program concurrently in other curriculum areas for which
  346  they are qualified while enrolled in college-preparatory
  347  instruction courses. A student enrolled in a college-preparatory
  348  course may concurrently enroll only in college credit courses
  349  that do not require the skills addressed in the college
  350  preparatory course. The State Board of Education, in conjunction
  351  with the Board of Governors, shall specify the college credit
  352  courses that are acceptable for students enrolled in each
  353  college-preparatory skill area. A degree-seeking student who
  354  wishes to earn an associate in arts or a baccalaureate degree,
  355  but who is required to complete a college-preparatory course,
  356  must successfully complete the required college-preparatory
  357  studies by the time the student has accumulated 12 hours of
  358  lower-division college credit degree coursework; however, a
  359  student may continue enrollment in degree-earning coursework
  360  provided the student maintains enrollment in college-preparatory
  361  coursework for each subsequent semester until college
  362  preparatory coursework requirements are completed, and provided
  363  the student demonstrates satisfactory performance in degree
  364  earning coursework. A student who has accumulated 12 college
  365  credit hours and has not yet demonstrated proficiency in the
  366  basic competency areas of reading, writing, and mathematics must
  367  be advised in writing of the requirements for associate degree
  368  completion and state university admission, including information
  369  about future financial aid eligibility and the potential costs
  370  of accumulating excessive college credit as described in s.
  371  1009.286. A passing score on a standardized, institutionally
  372  developed test must be achieved Before a student is considered
  373  to have met basic computation and communication skills
  374  requirements, the student must demonstrate successful mastery of
  375  the required developmental education competencies as defined in
  376  State Board of Education rule; however, no student shall be
  377  required to retake any test or subtest that was previously
  378  passed by said student. Credit awarded for college-preparatory
  379  instruction may not be counted toward fulfilling the number of
  380  credits required for a degree.
  381         Section 22. Subsection (7) of section 1008.345, Florida
  382  Statutes, is amended to read:
  383         1008.345 Implementation of state system of school
  384  improvement and education accountability.—
  385         (7) As a part of the system of educational accountability,
