LEE COUNTY, Fla.- Hundreds of people are supporting a move that could mean no more standardized testing for kids in school.

They want the district to opt out of testing but that could also have big consequences.

Supporters say they'd like to see the school district go back to using norm-referenced tests like the Iowa and California basic skills tests.

However, the district attorney is now warning that if board members go through with opting out, it could have very serious consequences on students and the district including a loss of state funding for Lee County Schools.

Students would also not be able to receive a standard high school diploma without taking an ACT or SAT.

A Facebook page created by the group that supports this opt out says they have close to 200 supporters planning to attend tonight's school board meeting.
