Superintendent's Memo Regarding ISTEP+ Scores

December 3, 2015

The below message is being sent via 25 local superintendents regarding the ISTEP+ results and school letter grades.  The IDOE indicated that we could expect E/LA results to be 16% lower than usual and Math results 20% lower than usual. We did our best to prepare students to perform on a test over which we had little information, feedback, or control.  

We thank our teachers and staff for their hard work and dedication to the students and the extra efforts to move students forward even when the state was changing the curriculum, topics, and test.
