SOUTH CAROLINA (WTOC) - The South Carolina Department of Education wants to hear from you about a request they are making to waive all federal testing next year.

Governor Henry McMaster passed a law this summer allowing the department to ask for a waiver for federally required tests.

The state superintendent says waiving some testing requirements will help students already behind due to COVID-19.

It includes 3rd through 8th grade English and Math, as well as 4th and 6th-grade science exams. College entrance exams will still be given.
