Board of Education Must Adopt Wider Criteria than Standardized Testing in State's Accountability System, CTA Members Urge

At its July meeting next week, the State Board of Education will take more action regarding the Local Control Funding Formula Evaluation Rubrics that will be used to assess student and school progress as part of the state's new accountability system.(Photos courtesy of the State Board of Education.)

CTA supports an accountability system that gets beyond test scores and includes multiple, whole-child and whole-system factors that address student outcomes, educational opportunities and equity.

Throughout California, educators are getting in touch with the State Board of Education Members to make their voices heard.

CTA has posted a sample letter to email the State Board immediately.

The recommendations from CTA are important, but you can also draw upon your own expertise and experiences to add comments.
