The Tippecanoe Valley School Corporation announces a revision to the 2014-2015 master calendar. The Staff Development Day scheduled for Monday, Jan. 5, 2015, will be moved to Monday, Oct. 27, 2014. As a result of this change to the master calendar, school will be in session for students on Monday, Jan. 5, 2015. School will not be in session for students on Monday, Oct. 27, 2014.
During the 2013 legislative session the Indiana General Assembly passed Public Law 286. The new law required the Indiana State Board of Education to review, adopt, and implement new K-12 college and career readiness standards that are aligned with post-secondary educational expectations.
This was to be accomplished prior to July 1, 2014. Indiana teachers are expected to implement Indiana’s new College and Career Ready Academic Standards during the 2014-2015 school year. Accompanying the new academic standards will be new student assessments. The Spring 2015 ISTEP+ English/Language Arts and Mathematics Assessments as well as the Spring 2015 Algebra 1 and English 10 End of Course Assessments will assess students on the new academic standards.
The Staff Development Day scheduled for Oct. 27 will be used by Tippecanoe Valley educators to focus on the successful implementation of the new K-12 College & Career Ready Academic Standards and the new ISTEP+ and End of Course Assessments.
Questions about Indiana’s new College and Career Ready Academic Standards and the new ISTEP+ and End of Course Assessments may be directed to the building principal of any Tippecanoe Valley school.
