AP test scores won't be tossed
MONROE - Advanced placement students in the Monroe school district who took the May biology test with the incorrect calculators will not have to retake the test to have their scores counted after all, according to Debbie Schmidt, the counselor who administered the test. Schmidt attended Monday's school board meeting to explain and give an update on the issue that was presented by three parents at the meeting June 9, and to "take responsibility" for the incident. She presented the board with a check for just over $2,000 to reimburse the district for the $89 test fee it had begun reimbursing to the 23 affected families.
