The hottest topic of the 2015 Legislative Session was undeniably testing. Passions were high on both sides of the issue and Legislators took until the final hours of the session to pass a compromise testing bill. The biggest changes are seen in grades K-2 and 10-12 testing. Testing in grades 3-9 remain largely unchanged. For a full explanation of the testing bill, please refer to Chalkbeat Colorado’s article. GSV will continue to monitor the testing dilemma and its impacts on education funding.
