The Wake County Board of Education has approved including alternative assessments such as Case 21 as “good cause exemptions” for the assessments required by the state’s new Read to Achieve law. Read to Achieve requires that third-grade students read at grade level before promotion to fourth grade.
The board’s action came this weekend during its retreat in Garner and is in response to a request from the State Board of Education for local approval of alternative assessments. At the State Board meeting, Wake had proposed using the Case 21 benchmark assessments as good cause exemptions. Other school systems had also proposed using mCLASS Reading as another alternative assessment.
Last week, the state Board of Education approved the proposals from Wake and 29 other NC school districts contingent upon local board approval. The decisions potentially reduce the numbers of students required to use portfolio assessments. Wake staff be providing additional detailed information to schools and parents in the very near future.
