MARLBORO -- In an attempt to measure Marlboro Elementary School's quality without federally mandated exams, surveys will be sent out to graduates from the past eight years.
A draft of the survey has been written by Marlboro Elementary alumnus Ariel Poster, who is a sophomore at Barnard College in New York City, a women's college affiliated with Columbia University. She was hired by the Marlboro Elementary School Action Plan Committee to evaluate the school's ability to educate.
"The School Board does not believe that proposed federally mandated testing is an accurate or useful form of evaluation," Poster wrote.
The effort comes two months after the Marlboro School Board announced they would say no to federally mandated standardized tests unless they are educationally beneficial.
"I think that'll gather us some very good information," school board member Andy Reischman said at Tuesday's meeting.
The draft featured eight questions, but is expected to be expanded, said Marlboro Elementary Principal Francie Marbury.
