"Many of our state legislatures and departments of education are trying to grapple with the testing issue, and people feel unsettled at the moment," says Mary Ronan, superintendent of Cincinnati Public Schools. "We're trying to look at the whole child and say, 'In these unsettled times, here's something we can all focus on besides a test score.'"
Beyond testing, the district will increase social-emotional learning curricula, student advising time, and access to AP courses. Ronan predicts more districts in the new year will focus on building well-rounded students rather than simply training them to pass standardized tests.
"It's the wave of the future-students can pick up college credit while still in high school," Ronan says. "We're trying to make college more affordable for families."
Administrators will focus more aggressively on career readiness in 2016, Ronan says.
"I'm a firm believer in public education as the great equalizer," Ronan says.

Superintendent Mary A. Ronan believes "national prominence is within CPS' grasp, and, pulling together, I have no doubt we will achieve it."
The Cincinnati Board of Education unanimously selected Ronan to lead Cincinnati Public Schools on April 16, 2009, after a national search. Ronan served as Interim Superintendent starting August 1, 2008, following the retirement of Superintendent Rosa Blackwell.
Ronan began her service to CPS in 1976 as a math and science teacher.
With a keen focus on raising students' academic achievement, Superintendent Ronan has led Cincinnati Public Schools to the distinction of being Ohio's highest-performing urban school district for four school years: 2009-10, 2010-11, 2011-12 and 2012-13.
Before her appointment as Interim Superintendent, Ronan served as Director of Schools supervising the district's principals. She previously served as an Assistant Superintendent, and she was principal of Kilgour School in 2001-02 when it won a National Blue Ribbon Award of Excellence from the U.S. Department of Education.
Ronan, a Cincinnati native, began her career in education with Cincinnati Public Schools as a teacher of math and science at the middle- and high-school levels.
