MAP testing protocols are currently under investigation at the Camdenton Middle School. In a statement, Camdenton R-3 Superintendent Tim Hadfield says the district’s legal counsel and officials from the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education are conducting an investigation about isolated incidents to follow testing protocols. After conducting an initial investigation, the District self-reported these alleged irregularities to DESE. No decision by DESE has been issued regarding the status of test scores which may have been impacted by a possible breach in testing standards. Hadfield says the investigation is being taken very seriously and that they strive to ensure the highest academic standards for their students. Since this is an ongoing investigation, the school district will not be able to comment any further at this time.
