LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- The clock is ticking for Indiana educators.
They have seven months to come up with a new ISTEP test, or lose $150 million in education funds.
There will be no pilot year on new state standards. The test must be fully ready to go next year.
In a letter, state school Superintendent Glenda Ritz says she's trying to keep a federal "No Child Left Behind" waiver after dropping the Common Core standards. To do that, the federal government says Indiana must implement new tests next school year that reflect its new curriculum standards.
