Lebanon R-3 Schools participate in testing pilot

The Lebanon R-3 School District is one of 20 Missouri school districts looking for a better way to gauge the academic progress of students by taking part in a pilot program devised by the Success-Ready Students Network. So that they can freely explore a new system, the Missouri Board of Education approved a three-year innovation waiver from being penalized by the state with a status change for any lackluster MAP scores while they focus on exploring the new testing models. However, a federal waiver has been requested but not yet been granted. Consequently, both the MAP and the i-Ready will be important tests for students and the school until a federal waiver releases the school from MAP testing accountability. In one way, the pilot program is not all that new for Lebanon. For more on this story, see the LCR.
