The PATINS Project would like to send out a big "Thank You" to everyone who made the 2013-2014 school year so successful! We thank our teachers, aides, administrators, therapists, and all school personnel.
We also thank our vendors who helped keep us all up to date on the latest equipment.
Our success is nothing but a reflection of all the hard work of our stakeholders and you have all worked very hard this year. Indiana students have succeeded and excelled because of all that you do.
There is still much work to be done and we will continue working over the summer. Let us know if we can be of service to you and know that we appreciate all that you do!
The PATINS Project is proud of every "starfish" that we help get back into the ocean. See how we are making a difference!

ISTEP+/End of Course Assessments: Computer-Based or Paper Pencil Mode?
This document will assist with the challenge educators face when deciding whether a student should be taking the computer-based ISTEP+/End of Course Assessments or if there should be a request submitted to the Indiana Department of Education, Office of Student Assessment, to allow a student to take the state assessment in a pencil-paper format.
Future of Indiana Modified Achievement Standards Test (IMAST)
This document from Dr. Michele Walker, Director of Student Assessment and Becky Bowman, Director of Special Education explains assessment options which must be explored with Case Conference Committees that have already selected IMAST for 2014-15, as well as those Case Conference Committees which have yet to meet to determine 2014-15 assessment-related decisions.
The newly redesigned www.Teachindy.com has been optimized to help parents and educators gain an inside view into our educational community. CIESC Media Services started by organizing 50+ educational videos into searchable categories. Viewers can search by topic, tags, or by the customized search bar. All of these details help viewers watch more, and learn more. TeachIndy wants to link you only to relevant content, that will help you better engage our community of educators. A teacher blog page has been added to provide an outlet for teacher created and media related information. TeachIndy hopes that you take advantage of our redesigned site, and that you will help spread the word.
