Newsom suspends state testing

March 18 - Based upon separate comments from Governor Newsom yesterday and State Superintendent Thurmond this morning, California is expected to cancel all required assessments for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year, pending the approval of a federal waiver.

We anticipate the Governor to issue an executive order soon to formalize the position and we will provide that to you when it is available.
