“The state of Florida is canceling all testing for students in the state’s K-12 public schools for the remainder of the school year”, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced Tuesday afternoon.
“Parents will have the option to hold their children back for a year if they choose. Requirements for graduation, promotion, and final course grades will be evaluated as if those assessments did not exist,” DeSantis said.
The governor said, “All testing will be waived for the rest of the 2019-2020 school year. Schools’ evaluation grades will also be canceled, the governor announced.”
K-12 school districts will also be instructed to direct unspent funds to help low-income students purchase digital devices to help with virtual learning.
