South Bend students miss ISTEP testing, will be made up


Students in South Bend may have thought they got off easy with Wednesday's snow day, but not so fast!

Students in third through eighth grade were scheduled to do some ISTEP testing Wednesday.

Parents may be wondering how their kids will make it up.

The South Bend Community Schools Corporation says it shouldn't be a big deal for students, they'll simply make it up tomorrow.

The district says students only missed about an hour of testing.

"I'm sure the students were disappointed when they got up this morning, looking for their opportunity to show what they know, but they gotta wait one more day," says John Ritzler with Research and Evaluation for South Bend Community School Corporation.

This is only one segment of ISTEP testing for this school year.

Students will have another round in April.
