MASSP had a win today in the House Education Committee. SB 403 (please see past Legislative News) came back before the committee today with "end of course" assessment development back in the bill. We had argued that as the bill came out of the Senate it eliminated the "level playing field" expectation of the new high school requirements. The Chair of the House Education Committee agreed.
This afternoon I met with Senators Jelinek and Switalski to discuss their eleven bill package (SB' 804 ....) to cut assessment costs. In the next three weeks the legislature still has to make significant cuts to meet their funding goals for the 07-08 fiscal year. Funding cuts around the MME and K-12 social studies assessments MAY be under consideration.
