BREAKING NEWS: Seminole County Public Schools announced today that it plans to eliminate all district level testing in Seminole County elementary schools. This new direction will say bid goodbye to dozens of exams such as the Iowa Assessment and could save up to 10 hours in the classroom per subject for each student.
SCPS’s decision will go into effect this fall at the start of the new school year and will affect its over 30,000 elementary students. While state-mandated tests will still be in effect, Superintendent Walt Griffin says, “We’re wasting a lot of time testing. So less testing, more instruction is what we’re all about.”
