INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 28, 2014) – Indianapolis Public Schools will delay ISTEP+ testing as another winter storm approaches Indiana.

Earlier this month, the Indiana Department of Education extended the testing window, which was originally March 3 through March 12. State education officials made the decision to give students and teachers more instructional time after cold and snow wreaked havoc on school schedules, expanding the window to March 21.

IPS will begin ISTEP+ on March 10. Testing is expected to wrap up on March 19.
