Please do not pass this bill out of committee. As a parent, I don't like HB 131 giving 3rd party contractors access to data like discipline incidents, parental involvement, etc... I don't like the CAT testing laws which it reinforces, and it expands the statewide network (SLDS). I don't think it is a good idea for one company to be the soul provider for this technology, as it limits choice. Where will we get the money to pay for this $200,000,000 technology? Surely it will end up costing more. Why are we putting so much money into implementing Common Core? It has not been tested? Please consider carefully this decision.
