LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) - At their meeting Monday, Lafayette School Corporation (LSC) trustees talked about the selection of the National Center for the Improvement of Educational Assessment to review the test of every student who was interrupted by server problems in April and May.
Superintendent Les Huddle says he's curious to see what the auditor finds. He believes even students who may not have had computer problems may have been rushed through their exam or been otherwise affected.
He says when ISTEP results come back, the district will do its own comparison to other tests the students have taken.
Overall he hopes the auditor will find the problems were not as bad as they were first feared.
"That the results will be somewhat validated, somewhat accurate. What we want, we can set aside the A-F scores, you can set aside some things, but we want to validate that our students are learning," says Huddle.
LSC trustees also re-authorized their agreement with the Beacon Academy Monday.
For the last five years the school, located on Cumberland Avenue in West Lafayette, has educated students in a non-traditional school environment. This year, the Academy taught almost 50 students in grades 7-12 with both service learning projects and internships.
"We started from scratch five years ago and had to build from the ground up in terms of furnishings and policies and procedures. Those are all in place now. We've had three graduations, so we're really excited to be able to move forward for the next five years," says Beacon Director Deb Lukens.
The new agreement is for the next five years.
