Republican Sen. Carlin Yoder of Middlebury pulled the bill Monday before it could be voted on by the full Senate. Yoder says he still wants to have a new school assessment system put in place and will work to have a new proposal developed later in this year’s legislative session.
The Senate Education Committee voted unanimously last week to back replacement of the A-F scale, which was a top campaign issue last year by new Democratic state schools Superintendent Glenda Ritz.
A spokesman for Ritz says she’s disappointed the bill was withdrawn and that she’ll work with legislators on new school accountability standards.
