Hamilton School board says New State testing mirrors Common Core
The Hamilton School Board met July 15 for their regularly scheduled meeting.
School board member, Jessie Green, was first on the board to report. She said that the state of Missouri has allotted 7 million to schools to develop new state testing. She added that all the technology that was previously built for state testing had been rejected. Green said the new Commissioner of Education did not know when or what that will be, but it will be in the spring, as they now have a contract with a different company than before. The commissioner did say, 1) it will mirror the state standards - Common Core, 2) it will use the same platform as was previously used because that is what the kids are used to, and 3) it will use technology the same before, they are just not contracting with the same company.
