    Changes in Education
    The State of Indiana will be going through many changes in education. Keep yourself up-to-date on these issues. Columbus City Hall is hosting Third House Sessions every Monday at 7:30 am where you can discuss important issues with your elected officials. It's important that they hear YOUR voice.

    • For students on a diploma track, they will either take ISTEP+ or IMAST. IMAST is a modified achievement assessment.
    • For students on a non-diploma track, teachers complete ISTAR for students.
    • You can find information and test samples about IMAST on the Dept. of Ed. Website at http://www.doe.in.gov/assessment/imastresources.html

    Parent Survey

    All parents of students with an IEP will be receiving a parent survey. We ask that you please fill these out and return them to the school. It is very important so that we may continue to improve our services for your children. We appreciate your participation!
