HRD Gives Up On Banding, For Now
In case anyone hasn’t seen it, the following is now posted on the HRD web site:
2008 Police & Fire Promotional Exam Info Update
Due to the recent preliminary injunction issued by the Suffolk Superior Court in regard to the police promotional exams, the Human Resources Division (HRD) will not band scores for the October, 2008 promotional exams or the November, 2008 fire promotional exams. HRD is planning on moving forward with rulemaking for score banding in the future.
HRD has finally agreed to do what we asked them to do in the first place: not change the scoring system without changing their rules.
As always, we will keep you updated when we get more information.
