Late breaking resolution before the MASC delegates assembly

The Delegates Assembly of the Mass Association of School Committees meets on November 5 this year. I just received my delegate's manual in the mail, and there's an addtion to the resolutions for us to consider:
WHEREAS many districts have expressed immense concern relative to our state's evaluation instruments, and:
WHEREAS assessing student achievement is important to all school districts:
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education conduct further examination of options for a state evaluation and accountability system and to substantially involve educators and school committee members in the process of choosing an assessment instrument, and to refrain from committing to any instrument before this process is complete.
