Three (Now Four) Florida Districts Suspend Testing Tomorrow and Perhaps Beyond


UPDATE: Palm Beach County schools to suspend testing tomorrow.

Miami-Dade, Volusia and Leon school districts are suspending FSA testing until further notice.

Jeffrey Solochek in Gradebook cataloged concerns that many superintendents registered last week. Here is what Miami-Dade superintendent Alberto Caravalho said:

“The continual interruptions our schools will face as they comply with Florida’s computer-based testing requirements will significantly detract from the quality of instruction provided to students. Although M-DCPS will abide by the state’s mandate for computer-based testing, I do not believe it will be possible for school districts to deliver high-quality instructional programs amidst the many disruptions created by computer-based testing

Caravalho has been registering his displeasure today on Twitter.

About Bob Sikes

A long time ago and a planet far, far away I was an athletic trainer for the New York Mets. I was blessed to be part of the now legendary 1986 World Series Championship. My late father told me that I'd one day be thankful I had that degree in teaching from Florida State University. He was right and I became twice blesses to become a teacher in the late 1990's. After dabbling with writing about the Mets and then politics, I settled on education.
