The primary purpose of the Department of Testing is to administer district and state testing programs. This includes training school testing coordinators, ensuring that all needed materials are provided, and ensuring that testing programs are administered properly. Evaluating student progress and proficiency is an important part of what we do at Lake County Schools. It helps us determine areas where students are excelling and where they may need extra help so that we can better meet their academic needs.
Fall 2020 state assessments will begin Sept. 14. Students who are enrolled in Lake Live and Lake Virtual are not required to return to campus for fall or winter testing and all tests will be administered in the spring. Please note that while participation in the fall and winter testing windows is voluntary, the state has not waived assessment requirements for the 2020-2021 school year.
More specific information regarding the assessments can be located on your child's zoned school's web page (Information/Testing).

If you received a certificate of completion and are interested in participating in a state test to earn a diploma, you will need to notify your zoned school at least two weeks prior to the test date to ensure they are able to make all necessary preparations to accommodate you. After receiving notification from you, the school will contact you with the day and time scheduled for your test.
