Local school officials are working to decrease their reliance on standardized testing.
Monday Frenship ISD recognized those supporting the Texas Association of School Administrators resolution against high stakes testing.
Lubbock Mayor Glen Robertson and Wolfforth Mayor Charles Addington II were there to support the initiative.
Mayor Robertson said the state wide testing that Lubbock schools are doing now is not working.
If passed, schools would refocus their attention on creative education and on real life skills that will aid them in the future.
And that change is something Mayor Addington is grateful for.
"It's not that they don't want accountability or an increased educational experience," Addington said. "But they want to improve creativity and get back to where students are not just being tested but also challenged to go out and do better."
