Back To School!!!!

It's that time of year - crowded school supply lines, clothes shopping, and getting back into normal bedtime routines.

For the 2009-2010 school year, the Indiana Department of Education came out with publications entitled "On Track".  There is a specialized edition for each grade level that offers advice on learning topics, study strategies, academic standards, ISTEP exams, planning and preparing for college, exploring careers, tips for parents and more.  These publications are still pertinent and relevant.

The publications are all online and can be requested in print (Spanish translations are also available).  They describe grade-level expecations and help parents identify their child's strenghts and areas that might need improvement.  There are tips tailored to help parents inspire and engage their children in learning.

Just scroll down the website and find the appropriate grade level for your kids
If you have questions about the publications you can call 1-800-992-2076

These publications are a joint effort from the Department of Education, Indiana Commission for Higher Education, Department of Workforce Development and the State Student ASsistnace Commission of Indiana.
