NOTE TO THE EDITOR: Please include the following statement from State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) in your coverage of Indiana Schools ISTEP Grades.

STATEHOUSE (Dec. 14, 2016) – “Every school in Warrick, Pike and Spencer counties received a C or better after transitioning to a new, more difficult ISTEP test and more rigorous standards,” State Rep. Ron Bacon (R-Chandler) said. “This goes to show that our teachers and administrators are doing an outstanding job instructing our students.

“Over the past year, lawmakers have been working alongside teachers and school administrators to find a more accurate, shorter and cost-effective performance assessment to replace the ISTEP test. During the upcoming legislative session we will work to find a solution that will be beneficial for both teachers and students.”
