The Smarter Balanced Consortia recognized Springfield School District for outstanding use of the interim assessments in reading/language arts and math. The consortia created a video highlighting the efforts of the school system to utilize these assessments as part of a local comprehensive assessment system and provide educators across the nation with an example of how these materials can be used to improve student outcomes. This national recognition is a tremendous honor for the school system and the state.

They are aligned with the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards and the result of six months of work from dedicated K-16 teachers from across the state.
