Chart Source - North Shore School District
Updated April 16, 2015 - - According to district officials, the parents of nearly 500 North Shore students in grades 3-8 who were scheduled to sit for the New York State Common Core English and Language Arts assessments that are being administered today through Thursday opted their children out of the exam. In grades, 3-5, 32% of students refused the exam while in the middle school, 45% of students opted out.
CORRECTION – A chart that had been obtained from the School district and that had been posted on Tuesday incorrectly showed that 40 students (58%) in the Glenwood Landing School 4th grade opted out. The correct figure is 22 students or 31% of students. Overall, district-wide, 18 fewer students than originally reported opted out. Additionally, while the chart stated the correct number of GWL third graders opting out, the percentage was incorrect. The correct figures are shown in the revised chart above.
