State education officials say student performance on the New England Common Assessment Program test won't be used to evaluate Rhode Island's teachers this year.
A Rhode Island Department of Education official says schools were sent a memo on the decision Friday. Chief of Education Excellence Mary Ann Snider says the department listened to the concerns of teachers in suspending the plan for a year.
Snider says the one-year postponement will give the Department of Education time to explain how the evaluations will work.
Commissioner Deborah Gist is consulting with federal officials about whether the state will need a waiver to avoid jeopardizing the $75 million Race to the Top grant.
