District policy could require students to take state tests

ANN ARBOR, Mich. (AP) – The public school district in Ann Arbor is considering whether to require all students to take state exams and keep those who don’t out of some school programs.

According to our media partners at MLive the district’s Board of Education is scheduled to vote on the policy at its June 10 meeting.

Deb Mexicotte, board president, says the proposed policy is under review and could see some changes at the meeting. Under the current proposal, students who don’t take the tests would be kept from district schools or programs that require an application to participate.

The district already requires 11th grade students to take state assessments in order to graduate.

Students around the state this year took the Michigan Student Test of Educational Progress, known as the M-STEP. Some opted out.
