2007-2008 testing calendar now online

The DOE has just posted the testing schedule for the upcoming school year, and it's a doozy. With a host of "predictive assessments," the expansion of the calendar to reflect No Child Left Behind testing requirements, and the city's new science test for grades 3 and 6, it looks like at least some kids will be taking a test nearly every day next year. May 17 and 18 look pretty clear -- maybe that's when schools will be able to fit in required arts instruction.
