WE BELIEVE THAT EDUCATION IS THE DOORWAY TO THE FUTURE! Warrick County School Corporation is an IDOE School of Promising Practice!
Pursuant to Indiana Code 20-32-5.1-12(d), the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE) outlined a rescore request process for open-ended items appearing on ILEARN assessments (Grades 3-8 and Biology ECA). The rescore requests are only made for the open ended type questions on these tests.
The 2018-2019 ILEARN Rescore Request Window will take place from July 15th to July 31st, 2019.
Since this is the first year of the ILEARN test there will be no report or summary of student test scores for the open ended items to request a rescore. Overall scores will be released to the schools on August 15th, 2019 and parents should expect their child’s score at some point after that date.
Parents can request a rescore for the ILEARN test in grades 3 to 8 or the ILEARN Biology test in the high school. This request MUST be made to the principal of the school your student attended when they took the ILEARN test in the spring of 2019.
Parents are required to set up a meeting with the school principal to review the open ended items and determine if they would like one or several of those items to be rescored.
A rescore request can result in a student’s score either increasing or decreasing. A second rescore request cannot be made.
Please call your child’s school directly starting on July 24th, 2019 if you wish to request a meeting (phone conference) with the principal to potentially ask for a rescore on this year’s test. Please remember that parents will not see their child’s score ahead of time and the IDOE has done away with the parent portal at this juncture.
Early Childhood Screenings (Age 3-5): August 13 & 14 at Castle High School and August 15 & 16 at WCSC Central Services Building (formerly the old Buy Low building) from 8:30 to 3:00 ~Vision, Hearing, and Developmental skills will be screened free of charge. Please call the Special Education Office for an appointment, 812-897-6578.
The Warrick County Health Department will be going into the schools to give immunizations to students in:
Fall - 6th grade and 12th grade
Spring- 5th grade and 11th grade (to prepare them for the next grade level). Also we will do 6th graders and 12th graders that need to finish a series of immunizations)
Please watch the school newsletters for paperwork.
Reminder: Student immunization records are required. Parents should submit student immunization records to the school or contact the school nurse to confirm pending immunization appointments.

DESTRUCTION OF RECORDS
The Warrick County School Corporation, Department of Special Education, announces its intention to destroy graduate records that were developed to provide a Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) in Warrick County Schools. This notice is in compliance with federal, state and local policies.
Records will be destroyed on May 1, 2019 based on the following criteria:
Students who graduated with a high school diploma in May 2016.
Students who received a certificate of completion in May 2016.
These records will be destroyed as they are no longer needed for educational planning purposes.
A parent who is a legal guardian or student (18 years old or older) may request records prior to destruction by contacting the Special Education Records Office at 812-897-6578. You will be required to produce identification or provide verification data to acquire these records.
