The Greater Jasper School Board received an update on ILEARN proficiency data for this past school year. ILEARN, the Indiana Learning Evaluation Assessment Readiness Network, is a program used to measure student achievement by Indiana Academic Standards. The program started during the 2018-2019 school year. Given the impact COVID-19 has had on education for the last year, assessment for the 2019-2020 school was waived. 

Tina Fawks, the Assistant Superintendent of Curriculum, Instruction, & Assessment, presented to the board the proficiency rates for English/Language Arts and Math, comparing Greater Jasper Schools rates with the state of Indiana percentage.
