First Quarter-Working Hard!

Dear East Chicago Central Parents,

We are well on our way to the end of the first quarter of school! Wow! Time goes by fast. We have lots of activities quickly approaching. One of those activities is College Application Day hosted by Communities in Schools. There is a lot of information listed on our website about upcoming activities and events. Although it may seem as if this is just for seniors, I encourage all families to attend these sessions especially if your student is planning to attend college. Upon the conclusion of College Application Day, we will kick off College Go Week! 

Please be sure to check students' grades. It is extremely important that we finish this quarter strong. Failing is not an option! Ask your son/daughter if they are spending time wisely during Cardinal Hour. The goal is to accelerate, enrich and involve our students tjos school year.

Together we will be successful in changing the future for our children!

Cardinal Hour

In order to provide greater opportunities for success for all students and to support the school vision of being “Actively Engaged in Learning.”  Cardinal Hour occurs on Monday thru Friday during the school day.  During this time, students will have the opportunity to eat lunch and spend time in acceleration, enrichment and/or involvement activities of their choice based on individual need or interest.   When they are not eating, students can see teachers to make up work, get extra help, attend a study group, do ACT/SAT prep, meet with a guidance counselor, attend club meetings, listen to college/community/local business leaders/motivational speakers, or just get involved in school activities.  Click on links below for more information.

Graduating Class of 2018

Resources for ISTEP


The purpose of the Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress-Plus (ISTEP+) Indiana Statewide Testing for Educational Progress Plus (ISTEP+) program is to measure student achievement in the subject areas of English/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science (Grades 4, 6 and 10), and Social Studies (Grades 5 and 7). In particular, ISTEP+ reports student achievement levels according to the Indiana Academic Standards that were adopted by the Indiana State Board of Education. The assessments are administered in two parts: Part 1 consists of applied skills (open-ended) items, and Part 2 includes multiple-choice and technology-enhanced items. Both Part 1 and Part 2 are required components of the ISTEP+ program and are used to measure student mastery of the Indiana Academic Standards.
