“After more than 18 months spent advocating on behalf of Hoosier students, educators and schools, Indiana’s education community has been held harmless as we transitioned to more rigorous standards and a more rigorous, state-mandated, ISTEP+ assessment. I am pleased to release school corporation accountability grades today which do not penalize schools and communities for this challenging transition. Hoosier students, educators and families have my gratitude for their dedication and hard work over the past year.”
