SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah State Board of Education has voted to discontinue SAGE testing for high school students in Utah.

The legislature will now have the final say in the matter.

Officials said this does not apply to middle and elementary school students.

Governor Gary Herbert wants to end the tests and met with the board Friday to gain support for the change.

He now needs about 50 percent of Utah lawmakers to agree to move forward with a special election.
