Main Points

​Proposed amendments to Policy ILB, "Assessment of Students," are before the Board for First Reading.  The proposed amendments add the terms "to effect change" to the sentence in the first paragraph regarding the goals of student assessment, and make other slight grammatical changes in the same paragraph.  In addition, Section II, 3, is amended to clarify that CMS follows the testing calendar published by the NC Department of Public Instruction.  In the footer, the legal references are updated with the citation to the State Board's policy on testing.  The proposed amendments were considered by the Policy Committee on March 14, 2017 and were approved by three of the four members (one member was absent).
