Despite Wednesday’s widespread closings of area schools, local educators still expect most students to complete the administration of Indiana’s high-stakes standards exam, the ISTEP, by the end of this week.
Indiana schools actually have until March 13 to finish the applied skills, or the written part, of the exam. The testing is administered over three school days…
“The only problem the weather could cause is it’s one less day to give makeups,” [Centerville Middle School Principal Rick Schauss] said. “That’s a concern if a student is real ill by two or three days.”
Wabash City Schools will be in session on Monday, March 18th to make up for today’s snow day.
