Seattle Superintendent José Banda announced Monday that the controversial Measures of Academic Progress exams will become optional for the 2013-14 school year, with a task force working on future options. The leadership of each high school will decide whether to administer the exams, Banda said. While many teachers and parents were seeking to eliminate the tests, the MAP reading and math exams still will be required at least twice a year for students in other grades.
