State Assessment Update and FAQ

In the spring of 2015, Illinois, along with many other states, will be assessing our students in a very different way.  Please take a few moments to look at the information below from the National PTA and our State Superintendent on how these changes will affect our students in the coming years.  As always, we thank you for your continued support of your child’s education at Hawthorn.
