The Miami-Dade school district recently decided to eliminate midterms and finals as a requirement. Officials say the move is meant to lighten the testing load on students — many of whom are, of course, thrilled.

A long line of tests stand between students and summer — baseline exams, interim tests, FCAT and end-of-course state exams, to name a few.

Many Miami-Dade students can scratch some tests off the list. No more midterms or finals for students in grades 6 through 12.

The longtime staples have been quietly eliminated by the Miami-Dade public schools and the school board. Approved at the October meeting, the policy makes midterms and finals optional.

Many students are elated, even shocked.
