My name is Jessica Anderson and I am a student from Kiona-Benton High School. My test was in the "lost box" with 22 other tests. Us students drove all the way across the Tri-Cities to take this test. Most students were retaking the test, due to failure to pass the previous test. I, however, was absent from the testing day when it was originally offered. I feel it is not my fault that the state's mail provider, Fed Ex, lost the test. My fellow students and I did what was asked and did it with no complaint. Our principle, Rick Linehan, is doing all he can to fight for the state to automatically pass, not waive, our test. I feel the state should take responsibility in their poor tracking systems and grant us our certificates of academic achievement.
