Testing Information for Home Schooled, Non-Public School and Out-of-State Students State Placement Test for 2019-20 School Year
(02-23-2019)
The Louisiana Department of Education and the BESE Board are requiring, per the policy in Bulletin 1566, that students seeking to transfer to a public school in grades 5 or 9 from any approved home study, nonpublic school, or Louisiana resident transferring from any out-of-state school, must take the State Placement Test.

Home schooled and non-public school students may take the test either May 29-30 or July 29-30. It is a two-day assessment.

Students planning to enroll in St. Tammany Parish Public School System in the fifth or ninth grades for the 2019-20 school year and whose parents currently reside in Louisiana must have already taken the LEAP 2025 test. If not, these students must also take the State Placement Test.

State Placement Test Application

The Louisiana Department of Education and the BESE Board are requiring, per policy in Bulletin 741, that students transferring from an approved home study or non-approved nonpublic school wishing to earn a Carnegie unit credit in a course with a state-administered end-of-course exam must demonstrate proficiency using the end-of-course exam which is the LEAP 2025 assessment. Each of these tests costs $35 and is nonrefundable. These tests will be administered the week of May 13-15, 2019 or June 17-20, 2019.

Students wishing to earn a Carnegie unit credit in a non-LEAP 2025 course must demonstrate proficiency on a district-created exam that is aligned to the state standards. There is no fee for these tests. To have results ready for school registration dates, these tests will be administered the week of June 17-20, 2019.
