Snow days have yet to impact Kentuckiana standardized testing schedules

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - Throughout Kentuckiana, standardized testing schedules have yet to be impacted by snow days.

In Kentucky, while K-PREP (Kentucky Performance Rating for Educational Progress) testing takes five consecutive days, it can be scheduled within a 14 day window. Many Commonwealth school districts opt for the last two weeks of school. As such, many districts have not been impacted by snow days.

With the possibility of more snow days still looming, however, it is too soon for many districts to say exactly when that 14 day window will take place for their schools.

Additionally, some school districts have added previously scheduled off-days back into their school calendars. Oldham County Schools, for example, have reassigned President's Day on Monday, February 17 as a school day.

Similarly, Jefferson County Public Schools are now considering reassigning February 24 and 25 as makeup days. The district's calendar committee will present the proposal to the school board on February 10.

Across the Ohio River in Indiana, Greater Clark County Schools plan to keep their ISTEP (Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress) testing window open longer. However, a spokesperson for the district did not wish to elaborate further.

While standardized KPREP and ISTEP testing has yet to be impacted by the weather, ACT testing has not fared as well.

On Friday, February 7, both Jefferson and Oldham county schools as well as the University of Louisville canceled testing scheduled for Saturday ahead of expected snow.
