U-46 remote students may avoid mandated testing


By Seth Hancock
  Federally mandated tests will be given this spring, but School District U-46 will not require students whose parents have chosen to continue in distance learning to return for the exams.  
  In a recent message from Superintendent Tony Sanders, he wrote that the exams would take place.  
  “Our students take federally-required state assessments every spring,” Sanders said. “These assessments help us understand how our students are performing and growing academically compared to their peers across the state.”  
  The SAT was scheduled for this week, on April 13, for all high school students. As a graduation requirement, juniors who do not take the SAT this year will have a chance to take it next spring, according to Sanders.  
  The Illinois Assessment of Readiness (IAR) exam is given to third through eighth graders measuring English language arts and math aligned to state standards, the Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English State-to-State (ACCESS) is given to English learners and the Illinois Science Assessment (ISA) is given to fifth and eighth graders as well as high school juniors and is administered online.
  “We will not compel students in our Distance Learning Model to return to the school building to take the IAR, ACCESS, SAT, or ISA, although our school teams will be happy to work with those families who would like to have their children tested…. Unfortunately, we will not be able to offer transportation for assessments to Distance Learning students, so parents or guardians will be responsible for transporting their children to the school building for assessments,” Sanders wrote.
