Indiana State House Officials Highlight "Hold Harmless" Plan In Wake of ILEARN Scores
Thursday, October 24, 2019

In regards to this past year's ILEARN results across the state of Indiana, Leaders at the Indiana Statehouse have announced a plan for a “hold harmless” policy for schools. The plan comes nearly two months after Governor Eric Holcomb asked for such a waiver as to the results from the first year standardized exam to not hamper funding schools receive from the state.

In a letter to Indiana Superintendent of Public Instruction Jennifer McCormick and the State Board of Education, House Speaker Brian Bosma and Senate President Pro Tempore Rod Bray said the plan aims to implement the policy “in the most timely, least disruptive way possible for our schools.”

Back in September, the results from the first ILEARN exam were released and showed a sharp decrease in the number of students who passed, compared to the previous year’s ISTEP+ exam.
