Superintendent Opens Testing Meetings to Public


West Virginia’s state schools superintendent has announced the time and location of the next Superintendent’s Commission on Assessment meeting.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports Superintendent Michael Martirano said in a news release Monday state schools decided to reconsider their decision to keep the meetings closed. Martirano says he is committed to transparency.

The superintendent also publicly released the names of members of his new advisory commission of statewide standardized testing. The commission’s next meeting will be 10 a.m. Tuesday at the Capitol Complex in Charleston.

Martirano formed the commission following a decision by the state’s board of education to change its K-12 math and English language arts education standards.
