Legislators File Bill to Drop End-of-Course Testing and waive 80 Classroom Day Requirement

After severe tornado damage and the COVID-19 outbreak in Tennessee, state lawmakers are working to help students and teachers get through the school year. Legislators filed a bill that would drop end-of-course testing and waive the requirement of 180 classroom instruction days for the 2019-2020 school year.
The Senate bill was filed Tuesday – the same day Governor Bill Lee announced that 100% of school districts are expected to be closed by the end of the week and will remain closed until the end of the month due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak.
Earlier in the month, tornadoes ripped through Middle Tennessee, killing 25.
