On Wednesday, May 8, 2019 the Testing Reduction Act (HB 239) was introduced in the Ohio House. The bill, sponsored by Representatives Gayle Manning (R- North Ridgeville) and Erica Crawley (D- Columbus), is bipartisan legislation.
Key provisions in HB 239 are:
- Reduce state-mandated standardized tests to the federal minimums by eliminating four high school end-of-course exams. (Geometry, ELA I, American History, American Government)
- Require school districts to convene a local work group made up of teachers, parents and administrators to examine district-required testing and make recommendations for ways to reduce the amount of time spent by students on testing.
- Provide that the state continues to offer a paid administration of the ACT/SAT for high school juniors, but student participation would be voluntary.
Please continue to follow as this bill moves through the legislative process.
A lot of GJEA pride around our district!
