The U.S. Department of Education has waived standardized testing requirements for the current school year for students in elementary school through high school. The department says it will provide relief from federally mandated testing requirements to any state requesting a waiver due to the public health crisis

Additionally, the College Board announced Friday that students in Advanced Placement classes will be able to take the end-of-course exams from home using a computer, tablet, or phone. There will be two different testing dates for each AP subject and the College Board is providing free remote learning resources. Click here for more details.
