LI students opt out of Common Core math tests
Nearly 88,000 students in 106 Long Island school districts opted out of Common Core math testing during the week of April 11, 2016, representing 52.8 percent of the eligible students, according to the districts. Here are the details. Districts that did not respond to requests for information or refused to provide it are blank. This does not include students who are waiving 8th-grade math test because they are taking Regents algebra or geometry exams. Fire Island, New Suffolk and Sagaponack school districts declined to provide data due to small school population that would result in inadvertent identification of children. The last column contains the percentage of students reported opting out of the math test last year at this stage. ** indicates figures supplied on April 13 and *** indicates figures supplied on April 14.
