Indiana Superintendent Glenda Ritz makes a stop in The tri-state. Ritz met with educators at the 4-H Center in Spencer County for the Democrats annual fish fry.
There the Superintendent talked to dozens about issues educators face today as well as finding a replacement for ISTEP. Ritz says the panel tasked with finding a replacement has met three times but still no real progress, “I want to move towards what I would call a growth assessment where we know where children are preforming over the course of a school year. I want to make sure that we have good information that is quickly given to parents, teacher and students.”
The ISTEP panel is scheduled to have its next meeting in August. The 2016-2017 school year will be the last time ISTEP is administered.
