2017 Legislative Session

I received the below information from Dr. Richard Frisbie, Purdue University, through the Indiana Association for Public School Superintendents.  If you follow the legislative session at all, you know how hard it is to keep current with the bills and their current status.  This is a good place to start if you are interested in following the bills impacting public schools.

Congratulations to Porter Lakes Elementary School

As you know, each year our third grade students take the IREAD-3 Indiana State Assessment.  This assessment is used by the state to determine if students are ready to progress to fourth grade.  If students do not pass in the spring, remediation is provided along with an opportunity to re-test over the summer.  If the student passes, then they proceed to fourth grade.  I am happy to report that we have 98% of our third grade students that have passed this assessment!  Not only did our third graders do their personal best, but our hard-working staff needs to be commended for all of their efforts to achieve this accomplishment!  Great work!

PTSC Standouts:
