Superintendents react to poor test scores

— King calls the new changes to the curriculum exciting, but says that the test results show that there is a long way to go. In a press release posted on the New York State Education Department’s website, King stressed that the scores will not negatively impact district, school, principal, or teacher accountability.

One thing that the superintendents all seemed to agree on was the hard work put forth by teachers, students and parents alike during the bumpy transition to the Common Core Standards.

“We applaud the students, teachers and parents. They’ve done a fine job amidst the difficulties of the way it was set up,” said Brannock.

A list of test results by school and by county can be found at the state education department’s website: www.oms.nysed.gov/press/grades-3-8-assessment-results-2013.html
