More than 70 people took time from their busy day to attend an Education Town Hall hosted by Senator John Curran and Representative David Olsen April 5 at the Lincoln Center in Downers Grove.
A video of the meeting is available below.
Rey Clementz, Director of Assessments and Accountability for the Illinois State Board of Education, (seated at right at table) led the discussion about classroom assessments and testing issues involving PARCC, SAT and other assessments. She also answered questions from those attending the meeting.
Sarah Hartwick, Co-Director of Legislative Affairs for the Illinois State Board of Education, coordinated the event and acted as Moderator for the evening.
Citizens who were not able to attend the Education Town Hall are invited to follow up with my District Office at 630-796-2623, or with Representative Olsen's District Office at 630-737-0504.
Our offices are working with the Illinois School Board of Education to get answers to the questions they didn't have time to address at the meeting, as well as answers to the questions from people who could not attend the meeting.
The Board has told us they are working to have answers by the end of the week.
