KENMORE, N.Y. (AP) — The school district may consider breaking the law and boycotting the state's standardized tests in April in opposition to Gov. Andrew Cuomo's education policies.
The Kenmore-Tonawanda Board of Education on Tuesday discussed a proposal to "seriously consider not administering" the mandatory math and English tests to students in grades 3 through 8 unless school funding changes are made.
The district also may consider taking student performance on the Common Core-aligned tests out of the equation for teacher evaluations in the 7,000-student district unless lawmakers change the statewide evaluation formula and reject Cuomo's proposal to make the tests count even more.
The measure had support from the nearly 200 people who filled the meeting room Tuesday, but the board put off voting on it to gather more input.
Board members said the public should know the consequences, including the potential loss of state aid and need for a tax increase, such a boycott might bring. They said lawyers also have advised that teachers who refuse to administer assessments risk losing their certifications.
