Hofmeister to request federal waiver suspending state testing for school year

OKLAHOMA CITY (March 19, 2020) – State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister announced today that the State Department of Education plans to pursue a federal waiver to suspend statewide student assessments for the 2019-20 school year.

“Oklahomans, like all Americans, are seeking to ‘flatten the curve’ of a global pandemic. Our foremost concern is ensuring our students and school communities remain as safe and healthy as possible, which is why the State Board of Education voted earlier this week to cease all school operations until at least April 6, and possibly longer,” said Hofmeister.
