Mary Hazel Small, New Hanover County School’s chief financial officer, said the state pays for the test development and scoring directly, and North Carolina’s statewide budget for this is $20,400,000. New Hanover County’s local testing budget totals $466,000 and pays for five staff members and support costs to coordinate the test, train school staff and analyze the test results, she said. That amount does not include the costs of school-based coordination.
