(1) Unless otherwise stated in these regulations, the available testing window shall begin on the day in which 66 percent of the school's or track's annual instructional days have been completed, but no earlier than the second Tuesday in January of each year, and testing may continue up to and including the last day of instruction for the regular school's or track's annual calendar, but in no case later than July 15 or the next weekday following the 15th if the 15th is not a weekday.
(2) The CAA for science shall be administered annually beginning on a date in September as determined by the CDE through the last day of instruction for the regular school's or track's annual calendar, but in no case later than July 15 or the next weekday following the 15th if the 15th is not a weekday.
(b) An LEA may designate one selected testing period for each school or track within the available testing window set forth in subdivision (a) above, subject to the following conditions:
(1) If a school has multiple tracks, a selected testing period may be designated for each track. (i.e., a year-round school with three tracks may select three different selected testing periods);
(2) An LEA shall not exceed 6 selected testing periods within the available testing window;
(3) A selected testing period shall be no fewer than 25 consecutive instructional days; and
(4) An LEA may extend a selected testing period up to an additional 10 consecutive instructional days if still within the available testing window set forth in subdivision (a) above.
(c) If an LEA does not designate a selected testing period for a school or track, then the available testing window, pursuant to subdivisions (a)(1) and (2) above, shall be the selected testing period for that school or track.
(d) The CDE, with the approval of the SBE President or designee, may require LEAs to more fully utilize the testing window and may also limit the usage of the interim assessments in instances where the CDE determines that it is necessary to do so to ensure that the capacity of the California K-12 High Speed Network (K12HSN) is not exceeded.
