Pasco County Schools says the district's Office for Accountability, Research and Measurement notified schools this morning that they could choose to test students tomorrow if they had not already started testing. Any schools that chose to postpone testing were directed to notify the office.  

At this point, the school board says only six elementary schools chose to wait until tomorrow to administer the exam. The schools are Chasco, Gulf Highlands, Moon Lake, Pine View, and Woodland elementary schools.
