MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The leader of Shelby County Schools supports suspending TNReady testing this spring.

Testing is scheduled to take place over the course of March, April and May. However, many schools across the state have already closed due to the coronavirus outbreak or plan to by week’s end.

Shelby County Superintendent Dr. Joris Ray tweeted his support of the measure on Tuesday saying discussion of assessment and accountability should be delayed until the next school year.

There’s no word from the Tennessee Department of Education regarding TNReady.
