ISTEP testing starts Feb. 29

Students in Jennings County will have ISTEP+ testing from Feb. 29 through March 11 and IREAD-3 testing from March 14 to 18.

The school district is asking parents to help their children through testing by making sure students are present and have eaten a healthy breakfast each day, watch an hour or less of television the prior evening and are encouraged to do their best and ask questions if they are confused during testing.
