State auditors to oversee Charter Oak ISAT testing

Mar 7, 2014

The Illinois State Board of Education is asking a contracted-auditor to oversee annual testing at District 150 Charter Oak Primary School. State board spokeswoman Mary Fergus says most schools are chosen randomly for overseeing how the I-SAT test is given. But Fergus says the current investigation into testing irregularities at Charter Oak prompted the state board to specifically ask that the school be observed.  ISAT testing is currently underway in the district, and ends March 14th. 

  The State investigation into Charter Oak’s testing of special education students continues.  The issue led to the removal of former CHarter Oak Principal John Wetterauer from that post. It also is a significant driving force behind the new ‘Change 150’ group, that aims to change district leadership and elect new school board members.
