Fairport following Ken-Ton in considering boycott of testing, evaluations

The Ken-Ton board this week considered two radical proposals by its president to end the use of student test scores as part of teacher evaluations and also stop administering standardized testing to grades three through eight. A vote on those proposals was postponed Tuesday night.

Now, the Fairport Central School District, outside Rochester, is also considering similar action after seeing the Ken-Ton resolutions, according to WHAM, Channel 13.

"We're not the only board to look at this proposal to say that this may have some merit," Fairport Superintendent Bill Cala told the television station. "It may have some merit, our board is looking at this, and our board has a history of standing up and doing what's right."
