Officials in AZ to seek delay in school ratings

EEducation officials in Arizona plan to seek a one-year delay in their ratings of schools as the state transitions to a new student assessment test.

The Arizona Daily Star reports that the state’s A-F grades for school districts and charter schools usually serve as an indicator of student achievement on the state’s assessment exam.

But the state is about to ditch that examination for a new test that will align with new standards.

The new test hasn’t yet been chosen.

Education officials hope to find a lawmaker in the upcoming legislative session to sponsor a proposal that suspend the grades and a third-grade reading requirement.

If a bill is passed, the state would not issue new grades or enforce the reading requirement for the 2014-15 school year.
