The school district shall establish and maintain a standardized basic testing program which can be used, communicated, and interpreted by school and by district.
The program shall lend itself to:
- A qualitative assessment of the educational program of the district for purposes of reporting the over-all status of the district and charting the growth of its pupils, grades, schools, and areas from year to year.
- Appropriate reports to the board,
- Interpretation and use by the teacher, counselor, and administrator so that the test findings shall influence the guidance and counseling of individual children, and the development of a high quality curriculum.
The program shall reflect the academic growth of pupils according to local and national norms; minimize the workload of school personnel in terms of test administration, scoring, interpretation, and use; be adequate and financially feasible, require reasonable training for involved school personnel, and assess the growth of pupils in the basic skills and subjects in the elementary and secondary grades.
The district testing program shall embody those tests required by state law.
Deviations from the established testing program must have the prior approval of the superintendent or designee.
