Ohio education officials say they are considering giving schools more time to administer state achievement tests this spring because students have missed so many days to bad weather.

Ohio Department of Education spokesman John Charlton told The Columbus Dispatch there have been some “preliminary discussions” about giving schools more time to prepare students for the critical tests.

State officials are looking into adding another week to a three-week window that schools have to administer the tests for students in third to eighth grades. Schools currently can give the tests between April 21 and May 9.
