Our Hearts Are Grieving With Orlando
District 70 Dear Families and Staff,

At a time when people across the nation should be valuing their time with family and friends and beginning some of the joyful activities that come with the onset of summer, a large group of young adults in the Orlando community will never experience such joy. The media is fully covering the horrific events that recently took place in a city that proudly houses "the happiest place on earth." As an educator, I am often looking to learn, understand and teach. Sometimes, however, there is no understanding of senseless acts of violence and there are no words. As such, often times when tragedies strike, parents and staff are often at a loss for defining or recognizing how to address such scenarios when questioned by young children.

The following sites, including a favorite from Fred Rogers, shared from generationOn, is a keeper, worth tucking away should it ever, unfortunately, be needed: Calming children after scary news, Fred Rogers on tragic events, Terrorism and children conversations that matter, and Helping children feel safe.

Our hearts go out those grieving loss in the Orlando community.

What is the Illinois Science Assessment?
On what standards is ISA based?
ISA is based on the Illinois Learning Standards in science incorporating the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). The State Board adopted these standards in 2014. The Illinois Learning Standards in science incorporating the NGSS replaced the previous science standards that were adopted in 1997. See the Illinois State Board of Education.for more details.

What types of items will appear on the ISA?
Each test will begin with reading passages, called scenarios, and will be followed by a series of test items. Some items will be open-ended, some will be multiple-choice and some will be multiple-select (more than one correct response). Other items will involve dropdown selections. Each test will also include stand-alone, multiple-choice items that do not follow a scenario.

What NGSS science content is covered in each test?
Grades 5 and 8 will have items aligned to Physical Science (PS), Life Science (LS), Earth/Space Science (ESS) and Engineering (ETS).
