Revision of Policy IP 4.700 Testing Programs after one reading, request to waive second reading
Rationale: 

The reason behind this request it to get final approval prior to the end of schools and calculation of student grades.  The policy is being revised to eliminate the 15% requirement of TNReady testing results in a student’s grade.  This is an emergency request/situation due to the recent legislation passed from all of the testing problems/irregularities.  If we go through the normal process of a second reading, this policy revision will not be final until June, which is too late. 

The plan is to create a statement to send to parents to notify them of this change after the approval in the board meeting

 

Recommended Motion(s):  I move to waive the second reading and adopt the revision of Policy IP 4.700 Testing Programs after one reading, passed with a motion by Board Member #1 and a second by Board Member #2.
