TALLAHASSEE, FLA. (WTXL) - Some big changes are on the way for Leon county schools; that could effect hundreds of tests, as well as the school and student environment.

Many parents were in attendance at Tuesday night's board meeting, looking for answers. Superintendent Jackie Pons announced Monday that all district end-of-course exam requirements would be eliminated.

While the board didn't offer many answers during the meeting, they did hear out community members' concerns.

Many agree that despite the unanswered questions, the decision to eliminate EOC requirements is a good thing for Leon county students.

The school board also showed their support for a resolution proposed by members of The Oasis Center for Women and Girls.

The group presented a 500 signature proposal at the March 24th board meeting. It asked that gay and straight alliances be established in all district schools. Supporters are excited for what this will mean for the community.
