That is what Trigg County School Superintendent Travis Hamby said in his final comments during Thursday night’s Trigg County Board of Education meeting.
Hamby asked educators, board members and school administrators to support House Bill 424, which would allow all seven Districts of Innovation in Kentucky – including Trigg County – to develop an assessment different from the one the state currently requires. The other 117 districts would still have to take the required state assessment.
“We would agree upon that assessment, we would pilot that assessment, we would look at that data,” Hamby said. “That data would be reported for the purpose of accountability. And in certain years, we would give the same test everybody else gives as a checkpoint, to make sure that our kids are doing as well as any other kid across the Commonwealth.”
