Bonacic is calling for various changes in current CCLS practice, such as the elimination of testing for students in Kindergarten through second grade, and addressing other problems such as teachers not getting teaching materials in time to use them properly, and also not receiving test results for up to a year after the test has been taken.

The Board of Regents on February 10 proposed some changes in the CCLS. According to a press release from the board, one change is that “the requirement to pass CCLS-based Regents exams at the college and career-ready level will be extended. The class of 2022 will be the first to face the new higher graduation requirements, 12 years after the adoption of the standards in 2010.” Current legislation proposes that standards kick in with the class of 2017.
