NYSSBA Exec: Expect better test scores next time around

NYSSBA Exec: Expect better test scores next time around

The Executive Director of the New York State School Board Association is issuing a message to teachers and parents: expect better scores on standardized tests next time around.

Tim Kremer says with another year of implementing Common Core under their belts, school board members are optimistic students will meet the challenge before them in the coming school year and districts will have the resources to provide for better scoring.

Kremer admits districts simply weren’t prepared for them.

He says a poll taken of school board members across the state says 67% expect their district’s third through eighth graders to perform better on next year’s tests.
