ACLU turns to courts in latest attempt to stop NECAP testing

July 24, 2013

PROVIDENCE – The RI ACLU and eight other plaintiffs sued the new RI Board of Education (BOE) on Wednesday to force the panel to answer a petition asking that public schools stop using the NECAP (New England Common Assessment Program) test as a graduation requirement.

The suit does not challenge the NECAP test directly – at this point – but merely seeks to have the BOE respond to a June 21 petition submitted by 17 organizations by either starting a rule-making process to consider stopping the use of NECAP as a graduation requirement or formally rejecting the petition with a board vote.
